Clear eyes, full hearts ... cease and desist?
Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg has requested that Mitt Romney stop using the show's slogan "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose" in his presidential campaign — and even accused the Republican candidate of plagiarism in a harshly worded letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.
"Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series," Berg writes.
None of the female cops inhabiting the current TV landscape may be quite as unapologetically outspoken and abrasive as Jane Timoney on Prime Suspect.
"She's a tough New York broad," executive producer Sarah Aubrey tells TVGuide.com. "She doesn't have a lot of her rougher edges smoothed off and that works for her in her own way. It's fascinating to watch a character say everything you're thinking and not really care about the consequences."
You don't have to tell Scott Porter that a show like Friday Night Lights — the football drama that won Emmys, a Peabody and inspired a catchphrase ("clear eyes, full heart, can't lose!") — doesn't come around often. He already knows.
"It was a lightning-in-the-bottle moment of magic with Friday Night Lights and I know that I can never do that again. So to do something starkly different, but still try and capture that same type of magic and create and own a character was great," Porter says. "I wanted a show to be able to call my own again."
