Friday Night Lights' stars land new shows. Where's Connie Britton's show?

One of the best parts of upfronts week is finding out which of your favorite actors will be back on TV in the fall with new shows. Sometimes, the returning faces have been long absent from the small screen. (Keri Russell, we missed you so!) Other times, it makes the end of one great show a little more bearable. Take Friday Night Lights, which is in production on its fifth and likely last season. Several cast members are already preparing for the end. FNL alum Adrianne Palicki plays one of two wives to a Texas con artist in Fox's Lonestar. New cast members Jurnee Smollett and Matt Lauria have also lined up new shows. Smollett stars opposite Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell in CBS' The Defenders. Lauria costars in Shawn Ryan's Ride-Along, which will air midseason on Fox. Several FNL alums also had pilots that weren't picked up: Scott Porter (Nomads), Minka Kelly (Mad Love), and Zach Gilford (Matadors). And Kyle Chandler passed on the lead in Steven Spielberg's Terra Nova pilot for Fox.
