“Severance” is written and created by Dan Erickson. Mark Friedman, Chris Black, John Cameron and Andrew Colville are executive producers along with Erickson. Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock and Jackie Cohn are executive producers of Red Hour Productions, while Patricia Arquette and Adam Scott are the producers. Endeavor Content acts as a studio.

“Ted Lasso”

But what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, losing determination, and cookies. The acclaimed series also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick Mohammed.

In addition to acting, Sudeikis is the executive producer, along with Bill Lawrence through his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
