and Ellen Barkin
. Check out just-released promo photos below!
Rannells received a Tony nomination for his performance in BOOK OF MORMON. He previously appeared on Broadway in JERSEY BOYS and HAIRSPRAY. Barkin's theater credits include The Normal Heart, Short Talks on the Universe, Eden Court, Fool for Love, Extremities, Killings on the Last Line, and Shout Across the River.
THE NEW NORMAL follows families that 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, "Girls," "The Book of Mormon") and David (Justin Bartha, "The Hangover") 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, "One Day"), 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 (Emmy and Tony Award-winner 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.
