Apple TV+ orders Vince Vaughn drama from Ted Lasso co-creator Bill Lawrence

Apple TV+ has ordered a drama series starring Vince Vaughn and written by Ted Lasso co-creator Bill Lawrence.

Vince Vaughn

Bad Monkey tells the story of one-time detective Andrew Yancy, played by Vaughn (True Detective, Swingers), who is demoted to restaurant inspector in southern Florida.

However, a severed arm found by a tourist when out fishing pulls Yancy into the world of greed and corruption that decimates the land and environment in both Florida and the Bahamas.

The 10-episode drama comes from Emmy-nominated writer and executive producer Lawrence and Warner Bros Television, where Lawrence is under an overall deal through his Doozer Productions.

Vaughn will also serve as executive producer on the show, which is based on Carl Hiaasen’s 2013 novel of the same name, alongside Matt Tarses and Jeff Ingold. Liza Katzer will serve as co-executive producer.

It comes after Ted Lasso has been one of Apple TV+’s most popular originals and has been renewed for a third season, having picked up a slew of Emmy Award-nominations.
