NBC Orders to Series This Is Us Dramedy From Grandfathered EP

Though Grandfathered and Galavant were both cancelled on Wednesday, executive producer Dan Fogelman is getting another shot at success with the dramedy This Is Us, ordered to series at NBC.

Starring Mandy Moore (Red Band Society), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls) and Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), the project follows a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways. We find several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect.

Justin Hartley (Revenge), Chrissy Metz (American Horror Story), Susan Kelechi Watson (Louie), Chris Sullivan (The Knick) and Ron Cephas Jones (Mr. Robot) round out the cast.

Also ordered to series at NBC for the 2016-17 season: Chicago P.D. spinoff Chicago Justice, DC Comics-based comedy Powerless and fish-out-of-water sitcom Trial & Error.
