“Friday Night Lights” exec producer Jason Katims was pleasantly surprised by the news that the DirecTV/NBC show that has long been a critical darling had finally cracked the best drama series race in its final year of eligibility.

“There’s something that feels right for this show that the nomination would happen at the end,” Katims said. “I feel like a Dillon Lion right now — between the way they were at the start of season four, a motley crew, to going all the way to the state championship by the end of the (final) season. There’s definitely some symmetry between this and what happened on the show.”
