“Featuring cases from across the country, accounts from those who knew these crimes intimately, and gripping archival footage, Murder Under the Friday Night Lights showcases how a tragedy that happens off the field can have ramifications far beyond the championship game,” reads the official synopsis. “From a football player in a small Texas town terrorizing his team’s cheerleaders to a promising football star gunned down before he could start his freshman season at University of Oregon, this new series gives viewers a first-hand account of tragic crimes that have not only turned the lives of the high school football players on these teams upside down – but have torn entire communities apart.”
Check out the exclusive Murder Under the Friday Night Lights clip below:
The first episode, titled “Killer in the Field,” focuses on the death of “a beloved high school teacher” whose “mutilated body lies in a field near her home, leaving behind a baffling trail of evidence. One suspect tells a story that makes no sense, but the real killer’s motives are as confusing as they are terrifying.”
