Connie Britton made an appearance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner over the weekend, and though she's currently starring in ABC's drama "Nashville," the topic of vital importance was her previous network show, "Friday Night Lights." The question: Will there ever be a "Friday Night Lights" movie?
Speaking to E! News, Britton said, "I would love it to happen. I'm a big supporter of it happening. I don't know if we will see it or not."
"Friday Night Lights" was a 2004 movie before it was a TV series on NBC, but the refashioning of the story for the small screen, focusing on the relationship between Coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and his wife, Tami (Britton), created a legion of fervent fans. When the series was in danger of cancellation by NBC, the devoted fan base followed the series to DirecTV, where it lived on for three more seasons.
The show went off the air in 2011, but fans are still wondering what the Taylors are up to these days. And apparently they're not alone. Of the supposed reunion film, Britton revealed, "I know it was being written and Peter Berg is really serious about it, so I think if everybody got on board, I don't see why we couldn't have a movie."
