Evil Bosses Take Us Inside Episode 5's Cheeky Nod to Ted Lasso

An overview: Sheryl (Christine Lahti) was shocked when Leland (Michael Emerson) sailed into their boss’s office and tried to claim credit for the company’s success as the demonic cryptocurrency Makob soared in value.

TVLine got in touch with the show’s co-creators, Robert and Michelle King, to learn more about the biscuits’ origin..
