NBC has been slow and methodical with picking up shows as they have picked up a few at a time instead of one fell swoop like FOX and mostly ABC. Today they picked up the Dan Fogelman drama This is Us.
The premise is a little vague as it is about people's lives, some with the same birthday, intertwining in different ways. I can't quite get a grasp on what this show is but it has gotten lots of acclaim in the pilot process. This is Us stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, and Sterling K. Brown among others. I expect we'll hear more from NBC tomorrow.
