Pilot Scoop: Michael B. Jordan Reunites with Friday Night Lights Boss on NBC's County

Michael B. Jordan County

It’s safe to say former Friday Night Lights boss Jason Katims had clear eyes and a full heart when it came to casting the latest role on his NBC drama pilot County.

The Emmy-winning auteur has tapped FNL star Michael B. Jordan to star opposite Jason Ritter in the medical drama, which chronicles the lives of a group of young doctors, nurses, and administrators in a troubled LA County Hospital.

Like Ritter, Jordan also appeared in Katims’ latest Peacock drama, Parenthood. (The guy is nothing if not loyal.)

Jordan can next be seen in the Feb. 27 episode of House.
