'FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS' PREMIERE DATE MOVES TO MAY 7 ON NBC

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - March 29, 2010 - The premiere of NBC's critically acclaimed drama �Friday Night Lights� will move back by one week from Friday, April 30 (8-9 p.m. ET) to Friday, May 7 (8-9 p.m. ET).

Expanding on the hit feature film and best-selling book "Friday Night Lights," the award-winning show centers on life in Dillon, Texas, where high school football brings the community together -- and the drama of small town life threatens to tear it apart.

As season four opens, a redistricting plan has left Dillon a town divided. After being ousted from his role as head coach at Dillon High School, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) finds himself faced with the daunting task of building a football team from scratch as well as motivating and disciplining the unmanageable East Dillon Lions. Tensions follow Coach Taylor off the field as he and Tami (Connie Britton), who remains principal of West Dillon High, find themselves increasingly at odds with one another. The new year will also focus on the fate of several returning characters including last season's graduates Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch), Lyla Garrity (Minka Kelly), and Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) as well as Julie Taylor (Aimee Teegarden) and Landry Clark (Jesse Plemons).

Other returning stars include Drew Waters and D.W Moffett. Also starring are newcomers Michael B. Jordan ("All My Children"), Matt Lauria ("Lipstick Jungle"), Jurnee Smollett ("The Great Debaters") and Madison Burge.

The series is executive-produced by Peter Berg (the film "Friday Night Lights," "Hancock"), who also wrote and directed the pilot, Jason Katims ("Parenthood"), Brian Grazer ("Frost/Nixon," "The Da Vinci Code"), David Nevins ("Arrested Development") and Sarah Aubrey ("Trauma").

"Friday Night Lights" is a production of Universal Media Studios, Imagine Entertainment and Film 44.
