Television version of “Friday Night Lights” filing here in Austin

movie-friday-night-lights.jpgNBC is apparently filming a pilot for a television version of the movie “Friday Night Lights.” I know some casting calls have gone around the Austin community and some extras have been rounded up for some overnight crowd shooting. I also read a bit about it in Entertainment Weekly. There’s also more information to be had at The Austinist. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that they were filming in Austin instead of just doing it in L.A. Being an aspiring actor/writer/director/etc. here in Austin, I love seeing anything that furthers our entertainment community. Mostly because I’d love to have some kind of career without moving to L.A. I love Austin and plan to stay here. I do not want to have to go to L.A. in order to actually have a chance at a career.
