Emily Rios was little more than on of Joe's employees at the party supply store, but she really embodied that character and made me want to see more of her. I must not be alone in that, because she's just been signed to a recurring role on NBC/DirecTV's Friday Night Lights
In The Wire, writer and creator David Simon tells the story of life in Baltimore from the eyes of the police officers (corrupt and clean), lowliest drug addicts, street corner dealers, school kids, politicians and seemingly everyone else in between.
NBC is not cancelling Friday Night Lights, as many fans had been fearing. It appears that the partnership with DirecTV, which has the show premiering on the satellite service first and costs shared by both parties, has made the show fiscally possible.
