Adrianne Palicki Update!

IMTA alum Adrianne Palicki and her fans have 2 new seasons and 26 more episodes in their future! Friday Night Lights was officially renewed! According to Variety, NBC and DirecTV agreed to a fourth and fifth season, which will be the same arrangement as this season's, where DirecTV airs the episodes first, commercial-free, before they air on NBC. IMTA INSIDER INFO: Two other IMTA alumni starred on the show this season; Zach Roerig as Cash and Jeremy Sumpter as J.D. McCoy!

The FNL Season Finale was also very well-reviewed by Ken Tucker, the Entertainment Weekly television critic who said,"What a humdinger of a finale we got for a superlative season of Friday Night Lights. Could things have been more tense, emotional, or funny? Coming on the heels of the announcement that we'll get two more seasons of FNL thanks to the agreement between DirecTV and NBC, that rarest of things has occurred: a relatively low-rated but unusually high-quality show has been saved from cancellation."

Adrianne competed at IMTA in New York City in 2001 and in an interview with the IMTA Video Crew, she said,"It was amazing. I love IMTA. I'm so sad it's over." She has graced the pages of of GQ Magazine and was nominated by FHM Magizine as "Girls to Watch". Her projects include Women in Trouble, where she portrays Holly Rocket, which is scheduled to be in theaters in the Fall and Legion, where she plays Charlie. After competing at IMTA, she went on to work in both film and television in such projects as 7 Mummies, The Robinsons: Lost in Space, Popstar, Smallville, CSI, North Shore, South Beach and Supernatural. She was also featured in a national Dove soap campaign.

Did you catch Adrianne guest-starring as Marisa Dixon this week on CSI: Miami? The episode, "Dead on Arrival" was seen by 12 million viewers according to Variety and was top-rated for the primetime slot! Way to go Adrianne!
