This is Us” is shocking preview audiences before its debut.
The Dan Fogelman-led show is set to premiere on NBC, according to its cast, extremely raw and real, and for Emmy nominee Sterling K. Brown, his character hits close to home.
“Randall lost his dad and has never known his biological father, and I lost my dad as a young man as well. So he has all these things going on for him in life — beautiful wife, great job, great home. But he doesn’t have his father,” Brown said.
“I found myself in this particular point in time in my life, with all these great things happening to me — wouldn’t it be nice if my dad was here? Wouldn’t it be nice if I could share this with my father?” he added.
The show packs an emotional punch, but Brown believes “This is Us” has a good balance of lightness and darkness making it extremely relatable.
