STAGE TUBE: Extended Preview of Andrew Rannells in THE NEW NORMAL
NBC made the most of its huge Olympic audience by previewing some of its most anticipated fall series during the London 2012 coverage. Included in the previews was an extended clip of "Revolution", a full pilot preview for Matthew Perry's "Go On" and a two-minute sneak peek for THE NEW NORMAL, starring Broadway vet Andrew Rannells. Check out the extended preview below!
'The New Normal' follows families that come in all forms – single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors… It's 2012 and anything goes. Bryan (Andrew Rannells, "Girls," "The Book of Mormon") and David (Justin Bartha, "The Hangover") are a Beverly Hills couple and they have it all. Well, almost.
With successful careers and a committed and loving partnership, the one thing missing is a baby. And just when they think the stars will never align, enter Goldie (Georgia King, "One Day"), an extraordinary young woman with a checkered past. A Midwestern waitress and single mother looking to escape her dead-end life and small-minded grandmother (Ellen Barkin, "Ocean's Thirteen"), Goldie decides to change everything and move to L.A. with her precocious 8-year-old daughter. Desperate and broke – but also fertile – Goldie quickly becomes the guys' surrogate and quite possibly the girl of their dreams. Surrogate mother, surrogate family.
The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ryan Murphy Productions. Ryan Murphy serves as creator/executive producer and director along with executive producer/creator/writer Ali Adler ("Glee," "Chuck") and executive producer Dante di Loreto ("Glee," "American Horror Story").
