NBC has just released photos for the upcoming episode of THE NEW NORMAL, titled "SOFA'S CHOICE, MUST WE GO BACK TO GREY GARDENS? The series airs Tuesdays 9:30 - 10:00 pm/ET on NBC. Get a first look below!
In the episode, Shania (Bebe Wood
) is working to adapt to her new surroundings and, much to the delight of Bryan (Andrew Rannells
), begins impersonating Little Edie from ‘Grey Gardens.’ Later, David (Justin Bartha
) and Bryan reminisce about the first time they met and decide to have a night on the town like they did when they were younger. Elsewhere, Jane (Ellen Barkin
) finds something disturbing in the boys’ room and enlists Goldie’s (Georgia King
) ex-husband Clay (Jayson Blair
) to try and woo her granddaughter back to Ohio. Elsewhere, Rocky (NeNe Leakes
) mistakenly suspects Shania of misbehaving.
These days, families come in all forms – single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors… It's 2012 and anythinggoes. 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.
