Scott Porter is the latest "Friday Night Lights" veteran to land a pilot role this development season.
 
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Porter will play a lead in The CW's "Nomads," from producers Ridley and Tony Scott and writer Ken Sanzel.
 
"Nomads" focuses on a group of young backpackers who somehow become become involved in secret missions for the CIA. We've heard good things about the script, but it perplexes us a bit.
 
Porter can currently be seen in a recurring role on Syfy's "Caprica" or on the big screen in "Dear John." But to us, he'll always be Jason Street from NBC's "Friday Night Lights."
 
It's been a busy pilot season for former "Friday Night Lights" stars, with Minka Kelly, Zach Gilford and Adrianne Palicki all securing potential small screen roles for next fall.
