Kyle's Career Filmstrip: TV Series and Movies

Apr 30, 2010

Peter Berg Talks FNLS on Podcast on PBS

"In Texas, like many other parts of the country, football is more than a sport; it's a way of life. NBC's television drama 'Friday Night Lights,' shows football as the raison d'etre for the small, fictional community of Dillon, Tx., but its residents also learn that life is about much more than touchdowns. The critically acclaimed series has touched (down) on off-the-field matters like Alzheimer's, alcoholism, infidelity and sexual assault.

At the heart of all of these stories are relationships, and married couple Eric (Kyle Chandler) and Tami Taylor (Connie Britton) act as the show's cornerstone. That relationship is likely to be tested more this season than at any point in the show's past. At the end of last season, Eric discovered he had been fired from his position as coach of the Dillon Panthers' football team. But in a twist of fate, the school district was split in two, and Eric is offered the head coaching job at financially-strapped East Dillon, while Tami is named principal at moneyed West Dillon."
