Starring Justin Bartha, Andrew Rennells, Georgia King, and Ellen Barkin, NBC's show "The New Normal" follows the lives of a gay couple, David (played by Justin Bartha), who is a gynecologist, and Bryan (Andrew Rennells), who is a television producer. With successful carriers, and a good life, they want to start a family.They meet Goldie(Georgia King), a single mother, who as recently fled from Ohio, and her estranged marriage. With her eight year old daughter Shania she goes to Los Angles, dreaming of becoming a lawyer. She meets David and Bryan, and they hire Goldie to be their surrogate mother.
Goldie's Grandmother, Jane (Ellen Barkin), follows Goldie to Los Angles and joins her permanently. Jane brings some tension to the table. Jane who is conservative and Catholic has more than a little reservation about the gay couple, and the child Goldie is going to help them have. The characters become personally involved through the trials of pregnancy, raising children, and starting a family. "The New Normal" presents a positive, sunny, sitcom style look into the world, and changing times.
The show is completely conscious of the strong negative attitudes of the show's detractors. "The New Normal" makes a point of showing multiple view points on the issues of gay marriage, and gay parenting. It tries to show both sides of the argument through characters like Jane, who are not, necessarily, depicted as, nonsensical, backwards thinking, comic relief characters. The objections and reasoning behind the opinions of Jane's character and others like her are voiced within the show as well.
