Teddy Sears: (on what made him join "Raising the Bar") For me, it always starts with the writing. It certainly helped because it was a Steven Bochco show. He is, arguably, the biggest name in television and has been with exceptions being Aaron Sorkin, John Wells, David E. Kelley, etc.
Teddy Sears: (on his first acting experience on television) I just loved it, I thought it was a real blast! I had no idea what I was doing, but I really fell in love with the work, and very luckily I've been able to continue doing it. [Getting into acting] was more curiosity than ambition.
