Please see the following statements from various below the line Emmy nominees today:


“We are both chuffed to bits to be recognised for our work on Ted Lasso. It is a wonderful show to be involved in. The main theme was the first thing we wrote and it was a statement of intent. It helped us work out the sound for the show and focus on organic sounds with a transatlantic quality. It is the DNA that holds the whole score together. We are truly grateful for this nomination and would like to thank Apple TV+, Warner Bros, Bill Lawrence and especially Jason Sudeikis for his unwavering vision and faith in us. Believe.”
(Marcus Mumford and Tom Howe – Composers “Ted Lasso”)



“It is a joy and honor to be recognized by our peers with an Emmy nomination. Like soccer, picture editing is a team sport and we are beyond thrilled that our entire team in Post Production, sound editing, mixing and music were also nominated. We have enjoyed an amazing ride in the cutting rooms and are grateful to be included on Team Lasso by Jason Sudekis and Bill Lawrence. It is a pleasure to collaborate with them so closely in crafting the stellar performance of this ensemble cast, and all of Team Richmond coming together like true Diamond Dogs.” 
(Melissa McCoy and AJ Catoline – Editors “Ted Lasso”)
