It looks like NBC has a hit on their hands with their new show, This Is Us, which is set to premiere next Tuesday, September 20th at 10pm EST.
HeyMikeyATL had the opportunity last night to go to a pre-screening of the show held at the Regal Perimeter Pointe theater in Sandy Springs; and it was a success. Guest were welcomed with coupons for free small popcorn and drink from the concession stand, along with This Is Us swag including magnets and tissues (which each guest were worn that the tissue would be needed). And it indeed was needed several times throughout the 45 minute screening.
“Starring Mandy Moore (“A Walk to Remember”), Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Sterling K. Brown (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), this refreshingly honest and provocative series follows a unique ensemble. As their paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways, we find that several of them share the same birthday and so much more than anyone would expect. From the writer and directors of “Crazy, Stupid, Love” comes a smart, modern dramedy that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know.
Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones also star.”
This new “dramaedy” (drama comedy) will puts the good in feel good. With the multiple stages each character is going through co-currently, viewers are bound to laugh and cry within seconds of each other sending the audience through an emotional rollercoaster, you don’t want to get off of. Beyond the great talent of the actors, the writing is superb. It gives great drama and suspense, from constant time lapse to the ultimate jaw dropping twist at the end of the debut episode, the world, just like those attending last night’s screening, will be on the edge of their seat, greatly anticipating the next episode.
NBC well done! If you haven’t already, take a look at the trailer for This Is Us below.
