Friday Nights Lights executive producer Peter Berg wants to do a documentary series on new Cougars coach Mike Leach and his team. Berg tells Broadcasting & Cable he's "fascinated" by Leach.
The actor, director, and producer wants to an HBO "Hard Knocks" type of documentary to cover fall practice and the first game or two. Berg hopes HBO picks it up, if the Cougars agree to do it.
Leach has history with Berg. The new Cougars coach appeared on Berg's show "Friday Night Lights" in a cameo a few years ago. Here's the clip.
Here's hoping Berg, Leach and HBO can make a deal.
