In its first three seasons, This Is Us has done something amazing — it has earned 18 Emmy nominations in acting categories alone! After being shut out in the first two seasons, Mandy Moore has joined the party, with a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

And, as he told us, it’s a craft that he’s studied very, very meticulously over the years, bringing a blend of both art and science to his projects. (Click on the media bar below to hear Ryan Tedder)
HBO’s new show The Righteous Gemstones is a dark comedy about a family with a televangelism empire.

The show was created by Danny McBride, who also gave us Vice Principals and Eastbound & Down, and he told us that, with the new show, he wanted to take some of his favorite themes and explore them in brand new ways.
