Out of all the sitcoms to resurrect from the 1990s, this one comes out of left field. Even more surprising is the fact, the original series ran on ABC initially. NBC, though, somehow got their peacock claws on Coach and convinced Craig T. Nelson to reprise his role. The network announced it’s ordered 13 episodes.
Coach aired on ABC from 1989-1997 and was a Top 20 hit show for the first six seasons. The revival will “pick up 18 years later and find his character Hayden Fox interrupting his retirement to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team.”
It’s not known if any of the other original cast members are returning. Hopefully, a couple of them make special cameos.
This revival comes off the heels of another 90s classic being resurrected. FOX renewed The X Files for a six-episode event earlier this week. What show from the 90s will be resuscitated next? Weigh in below.
What do you get when you mix pop duo Karmin with clothing from Coach and stylist Rachel Zoe? You get a music video for the classic Christmas song, “Sleigh Ride“. The “Brokenhearted” hitmakers are all dressed up for winter in fashionable threads from Coach’s 2012 winter collection.
The plaid fringe cape worn by Amy Heidemann in the clip is absolutely gorgeous. Don’t even get me started on Nick Noonan’s wardrobe. I want that tote, the duffel, the cardigan… I want it all. Mind you, anything looks good on that sexy Nick. Too bad he’s engaged (and straight) *wink* All the outfits were put together and accessorized by celebrity stylist extraordinaire Rachel Zoe.
Pure commercialism pimping aside (which I love) I actually like their rendition of the classic holiday tune, especially the rap interlude. It’s also nice to her Nick sing on a track besides being relegated to keyboard guy. They should really duet more often for future releases. As stylish as Karmin are, the video looks like a Target commercial. Probably not the vibe Coach was looking for. Watch it below and you’ll see what I mean.
