Titled “The Unauthorized Friday Night Lights Musical,” it will come to us in 2016 and be produced by the same people behind this year’s Unauthorized O.C. Musical.

"Every day counts. One night matters. The Unauthorized #FNLMusical is coming to LA in 2016!" Tweeted the handle @TheFNLMusical on Tuesday morning.

But… wait! This news gets even better: Scott Porter will be taking on the role of Coach Taylor in the production!

Added that same Twitter account:

"The player is now the coach... @nbcfnl's @ScottPorter is Coach Taylor in the Unauthorized #FNLMusical!"

Porter has shown off his impressive pipes on TV before, most notably during his run as a main cast member on The CW's Hart of Dixie.

Friday Night Lights debuted in 2006 on NBC and ran for five amazing seasons before folding up its playbook in 2011.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

Friday Night Lights Quotes

"When Jason Street went down the first game of the season, everybody wrote us off. Everybody. And yet here we are at the championship game. Forty thousand people out there have also written us off. But there are a few out there who still believe in you."

Eric Taylor

We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.

Eric Taylor
