"Dog Children" - Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) realize that their puppy, Harvey Milkbone, has been preparing them to be parents, but when they have to rush him to the veterinarian they learn that parenting comes with both joy and worry. Elsewhere, Goldie (Georgia King) is called in for a parent- teacher conference when Shania (Bebe Wood) disrupts class with her latest homage, this time to Oscar award-winning actress Maggie Smith. When Clay (Jayson Blair) steps in, Goldie is turned on by his take-charge parenting and old romantic feelings are rekindled. NeNe Leakes also stars. The New Normal airs on NBC on Tuesday, February 19 at 9:30pm!
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, "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.
