Called one of the best shows on TV by more than a dozen media publications, including Time and Entertainment Weekly, Friday Night Lights is not just one of the most critically acclaimed shows on air, it’s also one of the most watchable. Despite its focus on high school football, its masterfully crafted characters and honestly portrayed relationships make its portrait of small town Texas life compelling and relatable in ways that have nothing to do with field goals or touchdowns.

A Friday Night Lights Companion: Love, Loss, and Football in Dillon, Texas explores the victories and pitfalls of Dillon, Texas — both the town itself and those who live and love there. Because Friday Night Lights is so much more than just a teenage football drama: it’s about the struggle to not get trapped in the circumstances one is born into. It’s about love, it’s about loss, and, yes, it’s even about football.


Jen Chaney, Jacob Clifton, Jeremy Clyman, Kiara Koing, Paul Levinson, Ariella Papa, Paula Rogers, Jonna Rubin, Sarah Seltzer, Kevin Smokler, Travis Stewart, Robin Wasserman, and Adam Z. Wilson
