Mae Whitman, Jesse Plemons


There's going to be an official Friday Night Lights/Parenthood crossover, people!

Wait, the news gets better. Because you demanded it, the world is getting more Perd. Perd Hapley (Jay Jackson) of Parks and Recreation fame is getting a digital series too! The crossover, Perd's show and digital series based in the Grimm and Chicago Fire universe are coming your way to tide viewers over while the NBC shows are on hiatus.

"We worked closely with the writers on these series and want to give our audience a chance to stay in touch with their favorite shows," Rob Hayes, executive vice president of digital media at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "These digital series provide a great way to give our loyal audience even more original programming."
