The return of “Coach” to NBC is not going to happen, according to a number of media reports.
NBC had made a straight to series buy, for 13 episodes, though no premiere date had been announced. Only one episode had been taped.
According to E! Online, “On one hand, a ‘Coach’ revival seemed totally out of left field when it was first announced back in March. On the other hand, TV reboots are huge right now. Just ask ‘The X-Files,’ or ‘Heroes,’ or ‘Full House,’ or ‘Dallas,’ or ‘Twin Peaks,’ or the document we have saved on our computers labeled ‘Friends…Again.’”
Even though the series is not going forward, star Craig T. Nelson will be paid for 13 episodes, Deadline reports.
