LOS ANGELES: Even if you're trying to put the squeeze on a ballooning TV watch list, consider the pedigree of NBC's "Rise": It's from the "Friday Night Lights" producer who created "Parenthood" and a producer of Broadway's "Hamilton".The series, based loosely on the life's work of teacher Lou Volpe that was detailed in Michael Sokolove's 2013 book "Drama High," doesn't pick up where "Glee" left off.Radnor plays Lou Mazzuchelli, a fictional version of Volpe who finds himself in a rut teaching English and trying to cope with family tensions.The show was already in the works when the 2016 presidential election highlighted national divisions, Katims said, but its small-town, blue-collar focus makes the drama pertinent without being overtly political.
