“A signature 1990s sitcom is coming back for a new chapter,” writes our good friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The story continues, “NBC has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order to ‘Coach,’ with original star Craig T. Nelson on board to reprise his role and creator Barry Kemp set to write.” Nelson played coach Hayden Fox on the original series.
Says Variety, “The project will pick up 18 years after the original comedy went off the air. NBC’s revival of the original series will be set in present day with Hayden Fox retired from coaching. He is called back home to become assistant coach to his grown son who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.”
