Pilot Scoop: NBC Picks Up Ryan Murphy's Normal Family Comedy

Things are getting unusually Normal for Ryan Murphy, the man behind some of today’s more outlandish TV fare.

NBC on Friday ordered a family comedy pilot from the American Horror Story executive producer and his Glee cohort Ali Adler.

The potential series, titled The New Normal, is a single-camera sitcom about a blended family made up of a gay couple and the surrogate helping them have a baby of their own.

As previously reported, Book of Mormon star Andrew Rannells has already been tapped to play one of the series’ three leads.
