"Friday Night" to Light Up NBC's Schedule

by | September 20, 2005 | Comments

Peter Berg‘s football drama "Friday Night Lights" will soon a prime-time series for NBC, according to Variety.

""Lights" is said to be on the development fast track at NBC, with an eye on a fall 2006 bow. That would coincide with the return of the NFL to NBC — giving the Peacock a perfect promo platform for the project.

Berg directed and co-wrote "Friday Night Lights," the gritty 2004 drama starring Billy Bob Thornton as the coach of a small-town high school football team during the 1980s. U and Imagine Films produced the pic, which grossed just over $61 million."
