Watch “Ted Lasso” co-creator Bill Lawrence reveal the hectic, hilarious and oft-terrifying tale of how and he and Jason Sudeikis launched their hit new comedy series just weeks after it was green-lit by Apple TV Plus. Lawrence had launched previous hit shows like “Scrubs” and “Spin City,” but “Ted Lasso” presented new challenges that tested the talent chops of everyone involved in the creative and production process. Pay attention and enjoy his chat with Gold Derby editor and founder Tom O’Neil, who asserts that “Ted Lasso” is now a major contender in the award derbies ahead after the comedy series reaped cheers from audiences (it’s got a 98% score at Rotten Tomatoes among average viewers) and TV critics (90 score). Next up: winning over voters for the Golden Globes, SAG and other guild awards being staged over the next few months. According to the latest racetrack odds at Gold Derby, “Ted Lasso” is a trick pony to watch.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
