In the small town of Dillon, Texas, football is everything. The team to beat is the Panthers, who are coached by newbie Eric Taylor. Coming back after winning the State Championship, the Panthers will need all the help they can get once the next football season arrives, amidst all the personal dramas and injuries. This series is based on the book and movie Friday Night Lights. Season two of Friday Night Lights was cut from twenty two to just fifteen completed episodes because of the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. In order to save the show and produce a new season, DirecTV stepped up and will air new episodes of season three on DirecTV's "The 101" during the fall, and then they will premiere during the winter on NBC. Both seasons can be found on DVD, as well as repeats on Bravo.
NBC and DirecTV's Friday Night Lights, which was an adaptation of the hit theatrical movie Friday Night Lights, may be headed back to the big screen with its small screen cast intact.
This new movie will pick up right after the series' finale, and will center on Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and Tami (Connie Britton). Peter Berg, director of the original movie as well as numerous episodes of the TV show, is pushing forward, hoping to make this project a reality.Read More

It seems that the lights might be going out on one of NBC's programs. Entertainment Weekly's Ausiello Files is reporting that Friday Night Lights will end its run after its fifth season.
While NBC refuses to confirm the cancelation, even if the show is done after the fifth season, that still won't be for quite a while. The series has an unusual deal in that it airs first on DirecTV, who put up part of the production costs, and then the season airs on NBC afterwards. The fourth season just wrapped up last night on DirecTV and the season won't be airing on NBC until April 30. The fifth season will debut in the fall on DirecTV and will likely not even air on NBC until sometime in 2011.Read More
