Return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa--the winningest high-school football team in Texas history. Odessa is not known to be a town big on dreams, but the Panthers help keep the hopes and dreams of this small, dusty town going. Socially and racially divided, its fragile economy follows the treacherous boom-bust path of the oil business. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true. With frankness and compassion, H. G. Bissinger chronicles a season in the life of Odessa and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires--and sometimes shatters--the teenagers who wear the Panthers' uniforms.

In 1990, H.G. Bissinger released a book called Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, and A Dream. That book followed the story of the 1988 Permian High School football team in Odessa, Texas. It was a national bestseller that was made into a movie and a television series by the same name. Dr. Nathanial Hearne was one of the football coaches at Permian at that time. Coach Hearne was a key influence in the lives of the players on that team, and he has a unique perspective on the happenings at Permian. Dr. Hearne was the first black football coach hired at Permian. His experiences also have given him wisdom on how to be successful in life. Dr. Hearne shares what happened at Permian in his own words in his new book: Friday Night Lights: Untold Stories from Behind the Lights. This is more than just another sports book. Anyone who is responsible for leading others will benefit from the principles of excellence that Dr. Hearne presents through his real-life stories. Parents, teachers, coaches, supervisors, managers, and presidents can all come away inspired to take account of the legacy they are leaving behind.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 27. Chapters: Friday Night Lights, Oil Bowl, Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream, U.S. Army All-American Bowl, 1994 John Tyler vs. Plano East high school football game, Texas Football Classic, Texas Mr. Basketball, Bayou Bowl, Texas Miss Basketball. Excerpt: Friday Night Lights is an American television series adapted by Peter Berg, Brian Grazer and David Nevins from a book and film of the same name. The series details events surrounding a high school football team based in fictional Dillon, Texas, with particular focus given to team coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and his family. The show uses this small-town backdrop to address many issues facing contemporary Middle America, including school funding, racism, drugs, abortion, and lack of economic opportunities. Produced by NBC Universal, Friday Night Lights premiered on October 3, 2006, airing for two seasons on NBC. Facing cancelling the series, NBC struck a deal with DirecTV that saw the next three seasons of the show air first on DirecTV's The 101 Network before being rebroadcast on NBC after The 101 Network had completed airing the season. The series ended its run on The 101 Network after five seasons on February 9, 2011. Friday Night Lights never obtained a sizable audience. It was a critical success, however, lauded for its realistic portrayal of Middle America and deep personal exploration of its central characters. The show was awarded a Peabody Award, a Humanitas Prize, and a Television Critics Association Award, as well as several technical Primetime Emmy Awards. At the 2010 and 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards, Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton were nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress awards for a drama series. Friday Night Lights takes its inspiration from the non-fiction book Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream and the 2004 film...

In seiner ersten Therapiestunde mit Dr. Melfi erklärt Tony Soprano: "Es ist gut, von Anfang an bei etwas dabei zu sein. Dafür war ich zu spät, ich weiß. Doch jetzt habe ich manchmal das Gefühl, dass ich erst am Ende dazukam. Dass alles schon vorbei ist." In seinem brillanten ersten Buch beschreibt Alan Sepinwall, dass es eben jener Satz Tonys ist, der nicht das Ende markiert, sondern den Aufbruch zu etwas völlig Neuem, bis dato in der Medienlandschaft Unbekanntem. Sepinwall wurde durch sein Blog "What's Alan Watching?" zu einem der bekanntesten Blogger Amerikas. Als vielleicht bester Chronist der revolutionierten Fernsehlandschaft begleitet und erklärt er die Umwälzungen, die durch großartige, tief in die Verwerfungen der Postmoderne gestürzte Serien wie "The Sopranos", "Lost", "Mad Men", "24", "Breaking Bad", "The Wire" oder "Deadwood" entstanden sind. Gerade von der New York Times als eines der besten Bücher 2012 ausgezeichnet, ist dieses Buch eine geistreiche und kluge Kulturgeschichte. Zwölf Seriendramen der letzten 15 Jahre verhandelt Sepinwall. Er erklärt, wie die Künstler hinter diesen revolutionären Sagas die Zeit, den ihnen gegebenen Raum und die Vertrautheit des Fernsehens genutzt haben, um eben dort die Grenzen des Erzählens zu verschieben - und wie sie gleichzeitig die komplexen philosophischen Ansätze hinter ihren Werken sichtbar machen.
