Better Off Ted, the comedy about a guy who runs research and development at a morally questionable multinational, will debut in September on the Comedy Channel.
The series, from ABC in the US, stars Jay Harrington as Ted, a single dad to a seven-year-old girl who oversees two research scientists Lem and Phil, and a head tester Linda, for whom he has romantic feelings. He’s already had his self imposed “one office affair” with überboss Veronica (Portia de Rossi).
After the company cryonically freezes one of the research scientists, Ted begins to question the company’s objectives and morals. As you do….
Throughout the show, Ted also breaks the fourth wall by giving monologues to the camera to narrate his own life and explain the show’s events.
The show has already been renewed by ABC.
It premieres at 9pm Monday September 7th following the debut of 30 Seconds.
