Friday Night Lights is an American drama television series based around a high school football team in the fictional town of Dillon, Texas. It was developed by Peter Berg, and executive produced by Brian Grazer, David Nevins, Sarah Aubrey, and Jason Katims, based on the book and film of the same name. The series' primary setting, Dillon, is a small, close-knit community in rural Texas. Particular focus is given to team coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and his family, Tami and Julie. The show uses this small town backdrop to address many issues facing contemporary American culture, including family values, school funding, racism, drugs, abortion and lack of economic opportunities.
Tim Riggins: Texas forever.
Eric Taylor: Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose.
