In the pilot program of This is us, Pearson’s story opens with a birthday scene between Jack who is almost naked and Rebecca who is pregnant with a child.

“I remember reading it, and it said in the script, ‘Jack covers his pieces with a towel,’ and I’m like, ‘This is network TV, there’s no way they’ll showing his buttons! It will be in briefs or nude underwear… ‘”Moore said in the same interview with Glamor.
