One of the buzziest pilots of the season is about to premiere next month, and we've finally got a trailer.
The Village, a drama series set in an apartment building that is bolstered by a large, multigenerational ensemble cast, has earned early comparisons to fellow NBC show This Is Us.
The official description: Welcome to the Village, an apartment building in Brooklyn that appears like any other from the outside but is quite unique inside. The people who reside here have built a bonded family of friends and neighbors. Sarah’s a nurse and single mom raising a creative teen; Gabe’s a young law student who got a much older and unexpected roommate; Ava must secure the future of her young, U.S.-born son when ICE comes knocking; Nick’s a veteran who’s returned from war; and the heart and soul of the building, Ron and Patricia, have captivating tales all their own. These are the hopeful, heartwarming and challenging stories of life that prove family is everything — even if it’s the one you make with the people around you.
The ensemble cast includes Black actors Jerod Haynes, Lorraine Toussaint and Frankie Faison. It also stars Moran Atias, Dominic Chianese (who will possibly be the oldest series regular on TV at 87), Warren Christie, Daren Kagasoff, Michaela McManus and Grace Van Dien.

The series premieres March 19.
