It’s pretty clear at this point that the Friday Night Lights movie sequel isn’t happening. Even Peter Berg, who’s been pushing the idea for years now, seems to have given up. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen the last of the Dillonites.
NBC revealed today that FNL characters Landry Clarke (Jesse Plemons) and Billy Riggins (Derek Phillips) are slated to appear in an upcoming Parenthood web series. It’s one of several that the network has planned for the near future; Chicago Fire, Parks and Recreation, and Grimm will also get digital spinoffs during the Olympics hiatus. Hit the jump for plot details and more.
Update: The first part of the web series is online now. See it below.

The good news for a lot of comedy fans today is that NBC renewed Community for a fourth season. There’s a catch, however. That season is a truncated 13-episode order at this point. And while EW reports the renewal, the site says that the returns of series creator Dan Harmon and actor Chevy Chase are still to be confirmed. Presumably there would be no show without Harmon, but given recent statements by Chevy Chase, perhaps there is still reason to be concerned about his return.
Still no word on Parks & Recreation, though that could arrive later this evening. But we do have promo pics from NBC’s new shows, renewal announcements for 30 Rock and Parenthood, and word on returning stars for The Office. Also after the jump:
- Fox unveils a trailer for Fringe‘s fourth season finale
- FX is developing Heartsick, about a female serial killer
- AMC renews Comic Book Men and The Talking Dead
- HBO drops new character posters for True Blood
- VICE developing weekly newsmagazine series on HBO

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Got some brief TV news today, leading off with a project from Ron Howard that returns the filmmaker and Arrested Development producer to television comedy. THR reports that Howard has landed a pilot commitment at Fox for a multicamera workplace comedy set in an IRS office. (Cue cries of surprise about Arrested Development alums working once more with Fox, but execs reportedly loved the show so much they bought it immediately.)
The pilot will be written by The Office writer/director Brent Forrester. Howard had evidently played with the idea as a feature film, but Brian Grazer and David Nevins at Imagine convinced him to create a show modeled on Taxi instead. It centers on an agent who tries to work based on the idea “that his job is good and noble and provides a very important, vital service,” Forrester says, “The one thing that unites all Americans is their suspicion and hatred for the IRS. That makes the characters on the show underdogs, because outside the office everyone is suspicious of them.”
After the break, cassting news on Dollhouse and Parenthood. Read More »
