Who says sports and music don’t mix?

Friday Night Lights may be an Emmy-winning TV series, but it could soon be adding a Tony Award to its trophy case.

The NBC football classic is about to get the musical treatment!

It was announced on Tuesday that the people behind The O.C. Musical will be putting up The Unauthorized F.N.L. Musical in El Lay come 2016… but that’s not even the best part!

Believe it or not, one of the original main characters is actually attached to the live stage show!

That’s right — Coach Eric Taylor will be played by none other than Scott Porter, who famously portrayed quarterback-turned-paraplegic Jason Street for the first three seasons.

Glad to see they’re keeping it in the family!

There’s not too much other info about when and where you can catch The Unauthorized Friday Night Lights Musical, but you can bet we’ll be there!
