Friday Night Lights Trivia:

The series took place in the fictional small town of Dillon, Texas.

Friday Night Lights was inspired by a non-fiction book by "H.G. "Buzz" Bissinger" titled, "Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream" and by the 2004 movie starring Billy Bob Thornton that was based on the book.

Brad Leland and Connie Britton were the only two actors who appeared both in the 2004 movies and on this TV series. Both portrayed the same characters on the big and small screens.

Before Friday Night Lights, Kyle Chandler starred on another sports related series titled, "Homefront" as a minor league baseball player. Then a few years later he starred on the series, "Early Edition" as a man who got his morning newspaper one day early, before the events in the paper actually happened!

Friday Night Lights never attracted a huge audience but critics loved it for its true-to-life look at middle America.
