Friday Night Lights

Network: NBC, The 101 Network

Friday Night Lights was inspired by H.G. Bissinger’s 1990 nonfiction book and 2004 film of the same name. The series follows a high school football team in the small town of Dillon, Texas, and the issues that impact them on and off the field.

The ensemble cast features Kyle Chandler as football coach Eric Taylor, Connie Britton as his wife, Tami, and Aimee Teegarden as their daughter Julie. Zach Gilford starred as quarterback Matt Saracen and his best friend, Landry Clarke, was played by Jesse Plemons. Taylor Kitsch portrayed running back Tim Riggins, with Adrianne Palicki as Tyra Collette and Minka Kelly as Lyla Garrity.

Friday Night Lights premiered in 2006 on NBC and switched to 101 Network after two seasons. The series ended its run with season 5 in 2011. Chandler earned an Emmy Award for his performance, and the show won a Peabody Award in 2007 for Broadcast Excellence.
