'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.

    He said Coach Taylor would be “getting into trouble for something he likely didn’t do.” So he would’ve been innocent. It would have been an interesting story to tell.
