EXCLUSIVE: Alanna Ubach (Euphoria) has joined Seth MacFarlane’s comedy Ted, rounding out the main cast for the Peacock series based on his popular film franchise.

Ubach will play Susan Bennett. Susan is kind, selfless and almost pathologically sweet when it comes to caring for her family, and sees the world through naive, rose-colored glasses.
