A “Friday Night Lights” Musical Is Coming

Are you ready for the Tim Riggins kick line?

The team behind “Cruel Intentions: The Musical” and “The Unauthorized O.C. Musical” have announced plans for the same treatment to be given to beloved TV modern classic “Friday Night Lights”.

“The Unauthorized ‘Friday Night Lights’ Musical” is set for a premiere next year and one of the show’s original stars, Scott Porter, has signed on to play a role.

Porter played Jason Street in the series, but in the musical he’ll take on the role of Coach Taylor whom Kyle Chandler played in the NBC & DirecTV series. Also onboard from two of the previous musicals is Molly McCook who plays high school student Tyra.

Lindsey Rosin, one of the co-creators of the musical, says she and her producing partner Jordan Ross recently got the legal go-ahead to proceed. Further details about the run have yet to be announced.
