“The New Normal” is one of NBC’s half-hour comedy pickups for the 2012-13 season. It is “Glee” and “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy‘s first foray into a half-hour comedy and stars Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells as a gay couple that wants to have a child.

Georgia King is Goldie, a single mom who wants to give her daughter Shania (Bebe Wood) a better life, so she agrees to be the surrogate for the couple. Her grandmother (Ellen Barkin) isn’t quite as excited about the endeavor.

Check out the above extended trailer for “The New Normal.” What do you think, Zappers? A comedy you might try out? It will air Tuesday nights in the fall in a double comedy block with Matthew Perry’s “Go On,” airing from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
