Friday Night Lights | the high school football team of Dillon

If you compare today’s world to 10 years ago, it has undergone many changes. Friday Night Lights has been developed in order to show this contrast. It has been filmed in a fictional town named Dillion and its high school team. But its purpose from this football team is not football itself rather the social and personal problems of the people in this town, like racism, addiction, the important things for the families, and such, which are being addressed.

What is the name of the book that Friday Night Lights is based on and who wrote it?

This series sources from the book Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream which was written by H.G. “Buzz” Bissinger in 1990 and 2004 film which was created based on this book. The book goes into the stories of the Odessa football team Permian Panthers and the book features all of the people in this town and hence the book is non-fictional, the names of the people are real.
