Friday Night Lights comes to Sky Atlantic

NBC Sport drama Friday Night Lights is coming to Sky Atlantic in February.

Sky Atlantic has announced they will be airing the Emmy award winning drama from the end of February. The drama centres around a high school football team and first aired in 2006.

Based on the 1990 best-selling book by H.G. Bissinger, the show has earned critical praise for its warts-and-all portrayal of a middle class American town where football reigns supreme, sometimes at the expense of logic. Beginning with Coach Taylor’s unenviable mission to get the Panthers to the state championships, and the tragedy that threatens to derail this venture, Series 1 sets the bar for five seasons of unflinching and absorbing entertainment.
