I know I am not the only DC'er in love with the critically acclaimed Friday Night Lights so I will spread the hopeful news that has me smiling from ear to ear: FNL may be getting a two season pick up! According to Michael Ausiello (EW.com), who has the exclusive news, it's looking good that FNL will get a fourth season as NBC and DirecTV try to work out a deal. Season three, airing now on NBC, had its first run on DirecTV.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that NBC is engaged in active talks with DirecTV to extend their unique shared-window experiment with Friday Night Lights. But there's a catch -- and it's a good one. According to an insider close to the negotiations, DTV and NBC might only seal the deal if they can get – holy Connie Britton Taylor! -- a two-season pickup.
