Ted is created by Seth MacFarlane and serves as a prequel to the films Ted (2012) and Ted 2 (2015), written and directed by MacFarlane. The movies star Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett, a man whose childhood teddy bear Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) magically comes to life.

The Ted prequel is a live-action and CGI animated series set in 1993. The show follows Ted and a 16-year-old John (Max Burkholder), who lives with his parents, Matty and Susan (Scott Grimes and Alanna Ubach), and cousin Blaire (Giorgia Whigham) in Framingham, Mass.

"Ted may be a lousy influence on John, but at the end of the day, he's a loyal pal who's always willing to go out on a limb for friendship," an official description reads.

Ted premiered in January and is Peacock's most-watched original title to date. The show was also the No. 1 original streaming comedy in the United States for more than two consecutive months, according to Nielsen.
