"The Ryan Murphy-Ali Adler’s single-camera comedy pilot The New Normal...received series orders from NBC. Co-written by Murphy and Adler and directed by Murphy, The New Normal is described as a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple, Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha), and a cash-strapped waitress and mother of one Goldie (Georgia King), who becomes a surrogate to help them have a child. The New Normal also has been eyed for an early launch after the Olympics in August."

Note that last sentence - an August start means he'll be gone pretty quick. Congrats to him!


2ND UPDATE: ‘New Normal’, ‘Revolution’ & ‘Save Me’ Picked Up To Series At NBC

Josh Gad's pilot 1600 PENN is also about to receive a series order, coincidentally also on NBC.

EDIT: Pardon my grammatical faux pas.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

A big congrats to Mr. Rannells. I hope this is one Mr. Murphy's more consistent shows.

Like rain on your wedding day.

My name is neither "adam" nor "greer."

Seems like this show has been in the works for some time. Is Sean Hayes still a producer?

I think the thing here is that the word ironic was used incorrectly in a sentence. The meaning was never in question.

love Josh but sad he is doing a show with Jenna Elfman....I boycott all her work ever since she said "AIDS is a state of mind, and not a disease" and can be cured by scientology. Hope they replace her for the fall.

I think 1600 is going to be at midseason, if so that doesn't necessarily mean they will both be out at the same time.

The late summer, maybe? I wonder how many times they'll be absent for advanced press, though.

I'm seeing it in two weeks, so I'm guessing they should still be there for it.
