If you're like me and fell in love with Jenna Fischer in The Office, prepare yourself to find a whole new level of love for the woman we affectionately know as Pam. According to the Star Tribune, Jenna Fischer will be playing a Minnesota hockey mom in an upcoming independent film titled Way of the Warriors which according to its website is, "an inspirational sports and family drama that is centered around high school hockey on the Iron Range in Northern Minnesota."
The filmmakers at FilmNorth are describing it as being similar to Friday Night Lights and Remember The Titans and it will be directed by Fischer's husband, Lee Kirk. It centers around the coach of an Iron Range hockey team who community members want fired after they considered him at one point to be a "local hero". The team includes his two sons who have a brewing sibling rivalry that complicates matters.
The Strib report says that filming is set to begin next year. I can't wait to see Pam Beesly as a hockey mom!
