Sources confirm to me exclusively that the network has tapped the Friday Night Lights MVP to star in Nomads, an hour-long drama pilot about a group of young backpackers who work odd jobs for the CIA. Porter will play John, a magnetic and forceful college grad who is determined to find his missing brother.

The project hails from Ken Sanzel (Numb3rs).
