Behind the NBC storyline. The Season 4 storyline was not simply dreamed up by script writers for This Is Us β€” rather it was done in consultation with Hollywood, Health & Society, a program of the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School Norman Lear Center that says it β€œprovides the entertainment industry with accurate and up-to-date information for storylines on health, safety and security.
