If the numbers from the views on the trailer for NBC’s new series, This Is Us are any indication, a smash hit is on the way for the network and for one of its leads, The Young and the Restless Justin Hartley (Adam Newman)!

According to Deadline, this week the trailer for This Is Us which also stars Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, plus Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, and Susan Kelechi Watson is nearing the 30 million mark for views on facebook as of Friday afternoon.  This is a record for a rookie show for the seven days of upfront week where new trailers for all networks are revealed and posted online.

The This Is Us trailer shatters the record for most Facebook video views posted by the CW’s Legends Of Tomorrow last year (4.1 million), and in addition, the upcoming series bested the trailer for Fox’s Prison Break event series (22 million view) as the most-watched trailer for the entire upfront week.

This Is Us follows an ensemble, some of them sharing the same birthday, whose life stories intertwine in curious ways, is clearly resonating with fans and on social media.  There is a high level of shares and favorable comments to what the audience has seen in this teaser for the upcoming series.

What do you think of the high interest in Justin’s new series, This Is Us? Have you loved the trailer as much as we have and the millions of others from around the globe? We previously posted the trailer here, or make sure to go to the facebook link and up the views, then  comment below!

The trailer is really good and the show seems to be a future hit! Justin is too talented to expect him to remain on Y&R. I have much love for daytime craft BUT the money isnt there. JH can always return to Y&R later in life and be a Victor recast!

He would be stupid to leave his day job sometimes shows last five episodes and our cancelled the pilot pick up means zip nights time schedules so much is involved the only show I tape on NBC is Blacklist simply because James Spader is fantastic. By the way the bad haircut was indeed a sarcastic joke but yes I have been disappointed in the writing for Adam I miss the dark side I truly do

k, your right, networks have a quick, sharp knife with these shows! However, this show is testing well. I dont tune into much primetime but will see what this is about. The last time I was fooled was Blood and Oil. Love Don Johnson but the show was horrific! But anyway, Justin is young, he could probably handle both shows for a while? He is featured in the show but is not a lead. That way, like you pointed out, he will have daytime to fall back on if his new show doesnt last.

Justin Hartley did a outstanding job as Adam Newman. I will miss him. I loved his betrayal of Adam.

Ok teachable moment Chris Engender first Adam grown up was not happy with the way his character was vein portrayed had nothing to do with a gay scene which lasted ten seconds ruined his career ! Then comes Michael Muhney very opiated very anal about his job they fire him six months after the gossip about HHK he is gone then we hire a very nice guy nice body turn him into s watered down version of Adam! Now are we all happy now you said Chris was a homophobic and you said Michael was a grouper! Deal with i

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
