THIS IS US Preview: First Look at NBC’s New Dramedy Series

Hollywood seems to like ensemble shows and movies where people’s lives intersect in new and curious ways. And that’s the basis of THIS IS US, the newest dramedy coming to NBC for the 2016-2017 season.

Described as “honest and provocative”, THIS IS US focuses on a unique ensemble of characters — many of whom share the same birthday. And, apparently, “so much more than anyone would expect”. As their life stories intertwine in curious ways, THIS IS US “will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know”.

THIS IS US will premiere this fall on NBC (see NBC’s full fall schedule).
