Musical, announced Tuesday that they would be bringing Friday Night Lights to the stage with original songs next year. So far, details are scant — though the musical will take place in L.A. in 2016 — but the production team did share another exciting tidbit: Scott Porter will be playing Coach Taylor in the adaptation.
