Michael B. Jordan is hoping for a “Friday Night Lights” reunion
Swap “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!” for “Do you want it?” and you have your first parallel between Friday Night Lights and Netflix’s latest documentary, Titletown High.
The eight-episode first season, which debuted on the streaming service on August 27, follows the lives of teenagers in a Georgia city where football is king on Friday nights. Love triangles, drama, and rivalries emerge when Valdosta High School soccer players set their sights on a coveted prize: the state championship trophy.
Sound familiar? Well, that’s essentially the plot of NBC’s Friday Night Lights, which premiered on the Peacock Network in 2006 and ran for five seasons. Kyle Chandler Headed the series as the strict but empathetic coach Eric Taylor. While Coach Taylor often treated the Dillon Panthers like his own children, the real coach led the Valdosta Wildcats – called Rush Propst– is better known for his tough approach to love.
