Expanding on the themes from the hit feature film "Friday Night Lights", this series centers on the small rural town of Dillon, Texas, where the vaunted 2006 state football championship rings are held in the highest regard.
The town's promising high school team, its star quarterback, and newly appointed head coach Eric Taylor feel the mounting pressure of the town's pride and honor riding on their shoulders as a new season kicks off. The fresh cast also includes: Scott Porter as team captain and first-string quarterback Jason Street; Gaius Charles as feared running back Brian "Smash" Williams; Taylor Kitsch as running back Tim Riggins; Connie Britton as Taylor's long-suffering wife, Tami; Zach Gilford as third-string quarterback Matt Saracen, and Minka Kelly as Lyla Garrity, Panther cheerleader and Street's girlfriend. Also starring are Aimee Teegarden as Julie Taylor and Adrienne Palicki as Tyra Collette.
