High school football is big in Texas and NBC hopes it will be even bigger with a new series inspired by the book "Friday Night Lights."
The book chronicles Odessa Permian's 1988 high school football season. A movie has already been made, based on the book.
Now a TV version is coming, but this series will focus on the present day. It will be shot in and around Austin.
An air date has not been scheduled, but we'll let you know when that happens.
