In the tight-knit community of Dillion, Texas, high school football means everything. Friday Night Lights takes an authentic look into the lives and relationships of the players and prized head coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) that put their hearts out on the field each week knowing that it’s more than just a game. As relationships are tested between the coaches, players, and their families, it is the game of football that continually grants the town something to believe in that’s greater than themselves.
