Friday Night Lights is an American sports drama television series adapted by Peter Berg, Brian Grazer, and David Nevins from a book and film of the same name. The series details events surrounding a high school football team from a fictional town called Dillon: a small, close-knit community in rural Texas. Particular focus is given to team coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and his family. The show uses this small town backdrop to address many issues facing contemporary American culture, including school funding, racism, drugs, abortion, and lack of economic opportunities.
Tim Riggins: Texas forever.
Eric Taylor: Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose.
