As a multi-faceted actor, writer and director, Peter Berg moved with ease from theater to film to television and back again. After making a name for himself primarily as an actor first and foremost, especially with his regular series role as Dr. Billy Kronk on the acclaimed drama, "Chicago Hope" (CBS, 1994-2000), Berg furthered his aspirations as a writer-director with the ill-received black comedy, "Very Bad Things" (1998). Undeterred by the awful critical reaction and poor box office totals of his first film, Berg continued to develop as an artist, eventually being hailed for his third feature, "Friday Night Lights" (2004). Not artistically satisfied, he developed the feature into a critically acclaimed series in 2006, earning numerous awards and nominations, firmly distancing himself from his disastrous directing debut. Though the series "Friday Night Lights" (NBC, 2006-08) failed to attract a large audience - at least in the eyes of the network - both fans and critics alike campaigned to keep the show on air, despite constant rumors whether or not it was on the verge of cancellation. For Berg, both the film and show established him as a gifted talent from which many more exceptional projects were expected.
