LGBT audiences are eagerly awaiting the new comedy from Ryan Murphy (the gay cocreator of Glee, American Horror Story, and Nip/Tuck) and Ali Adler (the lesbian ex-wife of The Talk's Sara Gilbert, and the co-executive produer of Glee), and the newly released clip from the upcoming show, The New Normal, doesn't disappoint. Starring Andrew Rannells (from Broadway's The Book of Mormon) and Justin Bartha (of The Hangover fame) as an affluent gay couple, with their surrogate baby mama played by Georgia King (whose lesbian bathtub scene in Tanner Hall made that indie flick watchable), The New Normal promises to be next season's Modern Family. Here are clips from the pilot.
