The advance digital screening begins Wednesday, Aug. 29 before its television premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following new hit comedy Anger Management.
From award-winning executive producer and director Ryan Murphy, The New Normal follows the journey of two men with booming careers and a loving partnership. Bryan (Andrew Rannells; Girls, The Book of Mormon) and David’s (Justin Bartha; The Hangover) life together is missing only one thing: a baby.
A broke single mother, Goldie (Georgia King; One Day) signs up to become the guys’ surrogate as she tries to buy a new start for her and her daughter after ditching her dead-end life and trying to escape her small-minded grandmother (played by Emmy and Tony Award®-winner, Ellen Barkin).
“The New Normal is a strong addition to CTV’s comedy lineup,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Programming, CTV Networks. “The two week preview is a perfect way to generate buzz and audience momentum leading into the fall season.”
Golden Globe and Emmy-winning Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story) serves as creator/executive producer and director along with creator/executive producer Ali Adler (Glee, Chuck) and executive producer Dante Di Loreto (Glee, American Horror Story).
The sneak peek and all episodes will be available after their television premiere on CTV.ca.
