Friday Night Lights

 Friday Night Lightning

The Weather Channel featured Permian High School's football team and Odessa on its Friday Night Lightning: 12 Towns, 12 Weeks weather series.  A 2-man crew from The Weather Channel spent a day in Odessa during September shooting video of the City and of football practice, and interviewing head coach Blake Feldt and a couple of players.


Friday Night Lights is a 2004 drama film which documents the coach and players of the Odessa Texas high school football team, the Permian Panthers. The book on which it was based, Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream, was authored by H. G. Bissinger and follows the story of the 1988 Permian High School Panthers football team as they made a run towards the state championship.
