Kyle Chandler signs on for new Netflix series

Soon you’ll be able to watch Kyle Chandler on Netflix without streaming Friday Night Lights.

Chandler will star in a new, untitled Netflix drama series, EW has confirmed. The 13-episode psychological thriller is from Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessle and centers on “a family of adult siblings whose secrets and scars are revealed when the black sheep oldest brother returns home,” according to Deadline, which first reported the news. They note Chandler will play the married middle brother who takes care of the family.

Recently, Chandler has had a run in movies, including Argo and Zero Dark Thirty, and most recently appeared in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Kyle Chandler doesn't want to make another 'Friday Night Lights' movie. (Get over it.)

“There’s always a Friday Night Lights movie just around the corner — always just around the corner.” — Peter Berg

Last we saw Eric and Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights, they’d left Texas for Philadelphia, where Tami became dean of admissions at a prestigious school and Coach was starting from scratch with a new crop of inner-city football players. But series creator Peter Berg and showrunner Jason Katims had barely wrapped the show’s five-season run in 2011 when both men began dropping hints that they wanted to bring these beloved characters to the big screen. (Of course, the television show was itself based on Berg’s 2004 movie, which in turn was based on Buzz Bissinger’s 1990 book.)

'Texas Forever!': 10 things we learned from the 'Friday Night Lights' reunion

On Friday night in Austin, Tex., some of your favorite Friday Night Lights cast members gathered at sunset to drink Shiner Bock in a parking lot and reminisce about the glory days. This was not a dream. It was a stellar event put on by the good folks at the ATX Television Festival who’d organized a free outdoor screening of the season 1 season finale. (The next morning the thrills kept coming, as stars Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton surprised fans by dropping in unannounced on the FNL cast panel.) But on Friday, the show belonged to actors Scott Porter (Street), Gaius Charles (Smash), Louanne Stephens (Grandma Saracen!), Brad Leland (Buddy Garrity), Stephanie Hunt (Devon), Katherine Willis (Mrs. Street), Matt Lauria (Luke Cafferty), and Lamarcus Tinker (Tinker), who spoke with EW exclusively about their most treasured memories of working on the greatest show ever. Here are 10 of the best:

1. Scott Porter on Taylor Kitsch’s audition tape for Tim Riggins: “The camera turns on and you just see a leg.Then you see Kitsch sit back in a chair and he just looks into the camera. There’s a tall-boy next to him and he reaches down, grabs it, puts it on one leg, cracks it open with one hand, drinks the whole tall-boy, puts it down, grabs the second one, cracks it open with one hand and goes [in Canadian accent] ‘This is Taylor Kitsch, reading for Riggins.’ And then he begins the scene by the pool where he says ‘Texas forever’ for the first time.” READ FULL STORY
