Friday Night Lights is an American sports drama television series developed by Peter Berg, that is inspired by the 1990 nonfiction book by H. G. Bissinger, which was adapted as the 2004 film of the same name by Berg. It was executive produced by Brian Grazer, David Nevins, Sarah Aubrey and Jason Katims, who served as showrunner. The series is about a high school football team in the fictional town of Dillon, a small, close-knit community in rural Texas. The series features an ensemble cast, led by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, who portray a high school football coach Eric Taylor and his wife Tami Taylor, a high school faculty member. The rest of the primary cast includes characters associated with football and high school. The series 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.
  • Although in the finale it never says if they East Dillion Panthers win State, Vince is shown wearing his ring, and Luke is shown giving his ring to Becky.
  • Donald Glover drew inspiration from Smash Williams for his character on Community (2009). "When you think of the former high school football star, you think 6-foot-2, white, meathead as the model for that kind of character. Since I'm not 6-foot-2 or white, I just thought about what I could bring to it. I thought about Smash Williams from 'Friday Night Lights', like the cocky quarterback, and played around with that".
  • Kyle Chandler and Zach Gilford both guest starred in episodes of Grey's Anatomy.
  • All of the quarterbacks to play under Coach Taylor have a single digit jersey, except for JD McCoy, he was number 12.
  • Connie Britton(Tami Taylor) and Brad Leland(Buddy Garrity) appear in the film Friday Night Lights, but in different roles.
