An ensemble show about a family and their relationships, loves and lives that flashes back and forward in time.  A couple expecting triplets has one stillborn child, and ends up adopting an abandoned child that appears in the hospital at the same time.  This Is Us airs on NBC and garnered Globe nominations for cast members Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz as well.  Moore talked to us about the audition process with Milo Ventimiglia.  “We had a chemistry read together and we immediately hit it off.  We shook hands and then the next thing I knew, he had to sort of be nuzzled in my neck because we were doing the scene from the pilot, the very first scene where we’re playing husband and wife.  And it was just like, oh, yeah.  This is totally fine.”
