How Martin inspired This Is Us

  • Martin Lawrence’s 1990s sitcom influenced the way Randall and Beth interact. Susan Kelechi Watson binged on Martin in preparation for her role, as she tells TV Guide: “I showed up on set and I said to Sterling (K. Brown), 'Man, I think I'm watching (Martin) because I feel like if we can do this and come across as close to (how) they feel as a couple, close to the vibe that they gave us when we grow up, that connectivity, that ride-or-die type of love.”
