Recessed Lighting layout for living room

I am considering adding recessed lighting to my living room, but am not sure how to lay it out. I have 8 ft ceiling so will space about 4' apart. The issue I have is with a closet in one corner and the tv in that same corner. I'm not sure how to light that area without getting tv glare, or shadows.
Maybe putting the lights in that quadrant on a seperate dimmer? Different style light in that corner? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Your layout looks good to me. You can eliminate glare on the TV by angling it down a little.

For me, that seems like a lot of lights for a great/living room, usually you want lots of lights for a task area like a kitchen, a living room you want accent lighting around the perimeter of the room.

Id go 3 along the long walls and 1 on each end and you can adjust light with different wattage and or dimmers! Odd number of lights always seems to look more natural!
