NBC’s ‘The New Normal’ Draws Ire of One Million Moms Group

Fall TV Pilot Preview: NBC’s ‘The New Normal’
The upcoming freshman comedy from openly gay writer/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Ali Alder (Glee) has drawn the ire of One Million Moms, the conservative anti-gay group that blasted retailer JC Penney for featuring a same-sex couple in a catalog and the ouster of Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson.
In a posting on its website, OMM blasts the show and calls for advertisers to boycott the series, which revolves around a gay couple (Andrew Rannels and Justin Bartha) who attempt to start a family via surrogate (Georgia King).
“NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage,” the group wrote on its site. “These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture.”
