The Unauthorized Friday Night Lights Musical will be coming to a Los Angeles stage in 2016. Writers Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin (Sucker Punch Productions) – the duo behind The Unauthorized Musical Parody Of Cruel Intentions and The Unauthorized O.C. Musical – announced their latest project on Twitter.
Like Cruel Intentions and O.C. Musical, Unauthorized Friday Night Lights will be a one-night affair with Scott Porter set to play Coach Taylor.
We hear they’re planning to debut the show in late spring or early summer.
Ross and Rosin, along with Roger Kumble and Neal H. Moritz, have a reboot of the cult 1999 film Cruel Intentions, set at NBC with a script plus penalty commitment. The staging of The Unauthorized Musical Parody Of Cruel Intentions, at Los Angeles’ Rockwell Table & Stage in May generated buzz and drew Kumble, and the 1999 film’s stars Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair who all attended. We’re betting Unauthorized Friday Night Lights Musical will generate quite a bit of buzz as well.
