WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) – Soccer coach Ted Lasso is coming to the White House – in the form of Emmy-winning actor Jason Sudeikis.

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden are hosting Sudeikis and the cast of the feel-good Apple TV+ series “Ted Lasso” on Monday to promote mental health and well-being.

The third season of the series began streaming last week.

His administration has surged funding to bolster the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline and expand school-based mental health professionals.
