“We’re not done with Friday Night Lights,” executive producer Peter Berg told MTV News earlier this month. He explained that the script for a new Friday Night Lights film by FNL executive producer Jason Katims is nearly complete, and Berg (who will direct the film) indicated that one storyline would see Coach Eric Taylor (played by Kyle Chandler) mirror the headline-grabbing story of former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach.

Popular entertainment news website TheWrap, released its list of the five most fascinating characters on television in 2011. Not surprisingly, Friday Night Lights’ Tami Taylor (played by Connie Britton) ranked third on the list. “The delicate push-pull between Tami and Eric Taylor was always the heart of NBC and DirecTV’s beautiful “Friday Night Lights,” which concluded this year,” said TheWrap. “It came to a head during a tense family dinner in the final episode, as Coach Taylor tried to explain to their daughter why she was too young to marry. As he firmly explained that marriage is about compromise, Tami (Connie Britton) had to leave: The speech belied her husband’s refusal to move for the sake of her career.” Britton currently stars in FX’s American Horror Story, but fans can still hold on to a piece of the actress’ brilliant run as the coach’s wife.…
