Parenthood Webisodes to Host First Actual Friday Night Lights Character Crossover
Parenthood over the years has welcomed many a visit from Friday Night Lights alumni — but now for the first time some of Coach Taylor’s old charges will actually be crossing over to Jason Katims’ NBC drama.

NBC announced on Monday that Parenthood’s four-part digital companion series, “Friday Night at the Luncheonette,” will follow Amber (Mae Whitman) as she keeps an eye on her cousin Max (Max Burkholder) while working after hours at the recording studio. During Amber’s odyssey, Jesse Plemons and Derek Phillips will reprise their FNL roles of Landry Clarke and Billy Riggins, respectively, when the band Crucifictorious shows up to jam.
Just wait till they hear about her heated romance with Luke!
“Friday Night at the Luncheonette” debuts Thursday, Feb. 13. (Oh wait, now I get it — Friday Night. Ha.)
Earlier this winter, Katims crossed over David Walton’s About a Boy manchild to Parenthood, and plans to do same by having Crosby Braverman visit the soon-to-premiere NBC comedy.
The other web series en route from NBC are Parks and Recreation’s “The Hapley Group” (featuring newscaster Perd, Crazy Ira, “The Douche” and Joan Callamezzo), Chicago Fire‘s “I Am A Firefighter” (which follows Dawson as she awaits the next phase of her firefighter training) and Grimm‘s “Love Is in the Air” (in which Rosalee and Juliette gather their girlfriends for a spa party, only to discover a Zieglevolk casting a love spell among the group).
