Friday Night Lights Shoots Similarly to Southland

During a recent interview with Michael Cudlitz of Southland, Friday Night Lights and Kyle Chandler came up in the conversation.

Michael Cudlitz: ... From what I understand 'Friday Night Lights' shoots very similar as well. There's an immediacy and an intimacy that happens when you shoot that way, when you're rehearsing and when you discover a scene for the first time. I think that's one of the elements that makes 'Southland' stand apart from any other TV show that's out there.

I was going to say that 'Friday Night Lights' sounds similar to that, as well.

Michael Cudlitz: Yeah. I've met Kyle Chandler, about a year ago, and we were talking about the show and he was like, 'I have to come by the next time I come to town.' I think he says he needs to stop by because he knows Chris (referring to Executive Producer, Chris Chulack ) and he said, 'It sounds like you guys work the same way that we do.' We were talking about how wonderful and immediate it is.

Chris Chulack is a good person to know. He's produced shows such as Homefront, Third Watch, ER, and now, Southland. Would love to see Kyle guest star on Southland as an FBI agent or maybe an investigator from Internal Affairs ... followed by another, smart, edgy series of his own. We're just saying ...
