Backcountry Date Night: Columbia Sends Hollywood Newlyweds Off the Grid

See what happens when the star of “This Is Us” and his wife head into the wilds of Alaska.

Columbia asked Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin on the hit TV program, if he’d like to get out of Los Angeles for the weekend. Hartley and his wife, Chrishell, who is also an actor, were up for the challenge — even though both admitted they rarely leave Hollywood.

Follow along as the duo experiences a guided trek across the frigid, remote landscape. They have clearly never been on snowshoes or even hiked.

But that’s what makes this short film so endearing. Actors are real people, and they’re no less impressed with what the outdoors has to offer.
