While many might misconstrue Friday Night Lights as a dramatized serial about a football team, they would only be half right. Friday Night Lights is so much more than this. The story takes place in contemporary Dillon, Texas, and follows the lives of high school football coach, Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler, Bloodline, Super 8) his wife, Tami, and his teenage daughter, Julie, as they struggle to deal with the very real issues much of contemporary America deals with on a daily basis, such as strained marriages, drugs, racism, and family values. Outside of the Taylor family, the lives and struggles of members of the football team are also explored, such as a player suffering a spinal injury, which causes him to become a paraplegic.
