‘Parenthood’ To Feature ‘Friday Night Lights’ Alums

Parenthood - Season 5

With the Olympics currently airing on NBC, regular programming on the network is temporarily stalled, but one of the net’s dramas- Parenthood – will be giving its fan a fun little filler, the new four-part digital companion series “Friday Night at the Luncheonette”.

On February 13, the companion series will debut online, following Amber (series regular Mae Whitman) as “she keeps an eye on her cousin Max (series regular Max Burkholder) while working after hours at the recording studio. During Amber’s odyssey, ‘Friday Night Lights’ alums Jesse Plemmons and Derek Phillips will reprise their roles of Landry Clarke and Billy Riggins (respectively) when the ban Crucifictorious shows up to jam”.

The ‘Parenthood’ special four-part event “Friday Night at the Luncheonette” can be streamed at NBC.com, Hulu and YouTube. And, that’s not the only special event planned by NBC. The network is doing digital companion pieces for their comedy ‘Parks and Recreation’ and their dramas ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Grimm’.
