Ted, streaming on STARZPLAY on May 10th

The hilarious comedy for the grown-ups, Seth MacFarlane writes and directs this boundary-pushing live action/CG-animated comedy that tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish--and has refused to leave his side ever since. MacFarlane voices Ted, the boy's favorite toy who has become the man's biggest liability. - Watch the trailer here.
