NBC completed a deal Monday with DirecTV that will again split the next "Friday Night Lights" season between the satellite company and the NBC network. The new episodes will play first on DirecTV in the fall and be rerun on NBC in the winter and spring.
But the deal -- whose terms were not disclosed -- almost didn't happen, mainly because of the price of the license fee for DirecTV. Eric Shanks, the executive vice president for entertainment of DirecTV ... credited the NBC entertainment co-chairman, Ben Silverman, with saving the deal. "Ben called and said he was yelling at a lot of people," Mr. Shanks said.
