The New Normal is an American television sitcom created by Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler which revolves around a gay couple with successful careers who decide they want a child and find a waitress and single mother looking to escape her dead-end life and small-minded grandmother to be their surrogate.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 10 September, 2012 to 2 April, 2013. There are 22 episodes in one season.

The series originally aired in South Africa on M-Net (simulcast in HD) from 26 October, 2012 to 24 May, 2013, initially on Fridays at 19h00. It went on hiatus after Episode 11 (which aired on 4 January 2013) to accommodate a similar hiatus in the USA.

Synopsis

These days, families come in all forms - single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors... It's 2012 and anything goes.

Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) are a Los Angeles couple and they have it all. Well, almost. With successful careers and a committed, loving partnership, there is one thing that this couple is missing: a baby.

And just when they think the stars will never align, enter Goldie (Georgia King), an extraordinary young woman with a checkered past.

A Midwestern waitress and single mother looking to escape her dead-end life and small-minded grandmother (Ellen Barkin), Goldie decides to change everything and move to L.A. with her precocious eight-year-old daughter.

Desperate and broke - but also fertile - Goldie quickly becomes the guys' surrogate and quite possibly the girl of their dreams. Surrogate mother, surrogate family.

Ryan Murphy serves as creator/executive producer and director along with creator/executive producer Ali Adler (Glee, Chuck) and executive producer Dante Di Loreto (Glee, American Horror Story).

The New Normal is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ryan Murphy Productions.
