We were all blown away by last week's premiere of This Is Us! What a beautifully written and delicately produced show that was both breathtaking and heartwarming! Here I have some digital content of the stars and creator Dan Fogelman, who talk after the show, called "This Was Us", promos for this week's second episode and photos from the pilot - Did You See the Clues? Episode 2 is titled, "The Big Three" and will air on NBC, TONIGHT, Sept. 27th at 10pm EST (after The Voice)!
SPOILER ALERT!!! Every thing you read after this point will talk about the first show of This Is Us, it's plot twists, and what it was about, so if you haven't seen the first episode yet, please do before proceeding! It is so lovely and I don't want to ruin it for anyone!
After the show, Dan Fogelman (Showrunner, Creator, Executive Producer) sat down at a table with the cast Chrissy Metz (Kate), Justin Hartley (Kevin), Sterling K. Brown (Randall) and Milo Ventimiglia (Jake)! They each discuss what went into making the show and how hard it was to keep it's secrets! They also focused on the different story lines and how each is moving and relevant for our time.
Behind the scenes with the entire cast on the set of This Is Us! The cast includes Mandy Moore (Rebecca), Milo Ventimiglia (Jake), Chrissy Metz (Kate), Justin Hartley (Kevin), Sterling K. Brown (Randall), Chris Sullivan (Toby), Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth) and Ron Cephas Jones (William)! They introduce us to the story lines of the show as well as give us a peek of what went into making it. There are also interviews with the cast and audience members of when they pre-aired the episode in the movie theater.
Here is the commercial for this week's This is Us episode! It will be the 2nd episode entitled, "The Big Three". The babies are no longer tiny as the children are now about 8 years old and like to call themselves "The Big Three!" It looks like there is trouble in paradise between Rebecca and Jake, while Kate and Toby look to be having the time of their lives. It also appears like Beth is enjoying getting to know William, the biological father of her husband, who is enjoying time with his grandchildren. In the promo you will see upcoming guest star Jon Huertas (Castle), who will play the best friend of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia). This is Us will air on NBC on Tuesday night, Sept. 27th at 10pm EST!
Here is the promo that aired after the first show...It shows more contention between the characters than the one above. I wanted to include it because you will see upcoming guest star Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy, Married with Children, 8 Simple Rules, Futurama)! She will appear as a high-powered agent for Kevin (Hartley). Showrunner Dan Fogelman said, "It's her take on Ari Emanuel (Co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor)."
I can't wait until Tuesday's newest episode of This Is Us! From NBC Episode 2 is titled, "The Big Three" is about: "Kate (Chrissy Metz) is furiously working hard to shed her unwanted pounds as she continues to struggle with impatience and discouragement. She receives support from her new boyfriend, Toby (Chris Sullivan), as he helps her let loose and enjoy herself. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) begins to question the motives of Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) biological father, William (Ron Cephas Jones), and takes action in getting answers on his activities. Randall has a lot more on his mind with the new life-changing addition of having his biological father in his life. Marriage and raising three 8-year-old children is beginning to take its toll on Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) as they start to feel distant from one another. Kevin (Justin Hartley) faces the aftermath of quitting his job as he deals with his agent, Lanie (Katey Sagal), and has to figure out how to move forward."
This Is Us will air on NBC on Tuesday, Sept. 27th at 10pm EST (after The Voice)! This is the episode that will also have Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond, Til Death, Fargo) as a powerful television network president that airs Kevin(Hartley)'s TV show called 'The Manny'.
In the meantime, take a peek of the different pictures I have compiled from the first episode. There were clues all through the show, did you catch them, were you still surprised at the lovely, uplifting outcome?
