OK, you may not love talking babies, or talking animals, but a talking teddy bear with a foul mouth? Come on.
Seth MacFarlane’s movie “Ted,” which came out in 2012, was a massive box office hit, and the sequel, in 2015, also pulled in a lot of money. Together, they made $750 million. So naturally, the franchise is moving forward again, this time as a straight-to-series TV show for Peacock. The streaming service is giving us the 10-episode prequel we didn’t know we always needed.
MacFarlane will write the script and, assuming negotiations go well, voice Ted. There doesn’t appear to be a plan to bring back Mark Wahlberg, whose Bostonian character willed his teddy bear to life when he was a child.
