NBC to Keep 'Lights' on for Second Season, Adds Newcomers By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- With just days to go until its upfront presentation, NBC has confirmed its Peabody-awarding winning drama "Friday Night Lights" will return for a second season.
NBC entertainment president Kevin Reilly admitted last month (
read the story), the show would likely return with the only caveat being where to schedule the series.
In any case, it appears Reilly and company have found a place for the series on its 2007-08 schedule.
Also landing spots as of Thursday afternoon were the Kevin McKidd-led time travel drama "Journeyman;" Josh Schwartz's spy dramedy "Chuck"; the new age cop drama "Life"; and its revival of "The Bionic Woman."
In terms of staffing, it's understood Glen Morgan ("Millennium") is in talks to spearhead "Bionic" alongside David Eick while Matt McGuinness ("3 lbs.") has joined "Journeyman" and offers are out to both Glen Mazzara ("The Shield") and Daniel Sackheim ("House") to serve on "Life."
