PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Connie Britton's new series “ Dear Edward " gave her the opportunity to revisit a past project that she holds dear, “Friday Night Lights.”
Developed and executive produced by Jason Katims, the series “Friday Night Lights” was ratings-challenged but also had a passionate fan base among critics and viewers. Britton played Tami Taylor, a high school guidance counselor in a small Texas town who is married to the school's football coach (Kyle Chandler.) She is often a surrogate mother to the students and grounds her husband when the pressure to succeed is especially high. The show also put its cast — including Britton, Chandler, Jesse Plemons and Taylor Kitsch — on a different career trajectory.
