The comedy stars Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha as a happy, successful Los Angeles couple who want to have a baby. They find a surrogate -- a single mom and waitress played by Georgia King -- and come to incorporate her, her daughter and her grandmother (Ellen Barkin) into their lives.
"The New Normal" premieres on NBC on Tuesday, September 11th at 9:30pm, but the series has already been at the center of some controversy after Utah NBC affiliate station KSL-TV pulled the series from its line-up, calling it "inappropriate on several dimensions." On Twitter, star Barkin responded by saying "So L&O SVU (rape & child murder) is ok? But loving gay couple having a baby is inappropriate?" The previous year, KSL-TV pulled "The Playboy Club" from its airwaves because of its content.
