The comedy is described as ‘a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them have children’. Starring alongside Bartha and Rannnells in the comedy are Bebe Wood, Ellen Barkin, NeNe Leakes and Georgia King.
The New Normal has won over critics in America though some affiliated NBC stations in America have refused to broadcast it because the two central characters are a gay couple. Their refusal to broadcast the show is partly because the affiliate, in Salt Lake City, is owned by the Mormon Church.
The New Normal launches on January 10th 2013 on E4
