"The New Normal," one of the most controversial new shows of the year, has been released online before its premiere.
Already the target of a boycott campaign by One Million Moms and dropped by KSL, a Salt Lake City NBC affiliate, "The New Normal" follows a gay couple and their quest to have a child. "Book of Mormon" star Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha play Bryan and David, the couple at the center of the story, NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin, Georgia King and Bebe Wood round out the cast.
"The scenes may be too explicit or the characterizations might seem offensive," Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL's parent company, Bonneville International, told the Salt Lake City Tribune.
"I always find it to be interesting for people to make that decision before they've even seen it. The show is about tolerance -- it's a discussion of tolerance," executive producer Ryan Murphy said in response to the One Million Moms protest. "Actually, if they watched it, I think they would like it."
Well, now you can see it.
"The New Normal" makes its broadcast debut on Tues., Sept. 11 at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
