'Friday Night Lights' Creator Reveals What Show's Movie Plot Would Have Been

The plot for the Friday Night Lights movie – which never got made – has been revealed!

Peter Berg, the creator of the fan-favorite show starring Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, and more, went on The Bill Simmons podcast and revealed what the plot would have been.

Peter said he “had a whole pitch that it was going to be based on Mike Leach getting in trouble for allegedly doing something that he most likely didn’t do … [producer] Jason Katims worked pretty hard on it.”

Mike Leach was a coach at Texas Tech in 2009 and was fired after accusations that he treated a player with a concussion poorly. So seemingly, Kyle‘s character (Coach Taylor) would have gone through a similar situation in the movie.
