Connie Britton blames Kyle Chandler for holding up Friday Night Lights movie


There is disunion in the Taylor household.

Connie Britton – aka. Mrs. Coach – was asked on Watch What Happens Live about the future of Friday Night Lights, which ran for five seasons on television and was rumoured to be getting a big-screen sequel.

“You know, there’s been a lot of talk about a lot of things… And some people are really excited about it, and other people aren’t.

“I love the idea. I think it would be a great idea. But my former husband, Coach Eric Taylor…,” Britton said, leaving a silence for Kyle Chandler to stew in.

WWHL host Andy Cohen then jumped in, saying, “He thinks you did it already,” suggesting the final episode of the show was a satisfying enough farewell for Chandler.

“Well, and he has a point, and we would only do it if it was going to be a great movie,” Britton said.

Chandler won an Emmy for playing Coach Taylor, the irascible but devoted high school football coach.

Friday Night Lights began life as a non-fiction book by H.G. Bissinger, and was adapted for the screen by Peter Berg.

Berg than produced the fictionalised TV series based on the real-life events.

Britton was Emmy nominated for her part as Tammy Taylor, and her on-screen marriage with Chandler is easily one of the best in TV history.

  1. As much as I love FNL and would love to see new episodes, I agree that the series ending was close to perfect. I have a better idea, let’s say coach Taylor moves to nashville to coach Vandy and becomes the love interest of Connie’s character. Then Connie’s dad buys titans and makes coach Taylor the head coach. Connie wakes up one morning and realizes the entire country music thing was a dream and remarries coach Taylor .
