I know I just did a post on this but I wanted to shout out to a new show that I think you should check out called The New Normal. The Pilot is available to watch on Hulu – but it also begins airing tonight on NBC. You know it’s good because One Million Moms has already protested it.
The shows focus is a gay couple who decide they want a child, and a young single mom who wants a better life for herself and her daughter. From what I could piece together from the pilot it looks like they’re going to follow the surrogacy while they show a different type of family. I’m stoked on these types of shows (ex: modern family) and think they really help broaden the perception of what a family can be. This one (created by Ryan Murphy) feels fresh, sweet, and funny to boot.
Okay, and Andrew Rannells being absolutely adorable helps too.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
