NBC Requests DeGeneres’ Gay-Themed Pilot

‘The New Normal,’ well, wasn’t. What about ‘One Big Happy?’

There’s a new “New Normal” racing towards primetime on NBC. 

Entertainment Weekly recently reported that NBC requested the pilot for “One Big Happy,” a comedy produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros. TV. The official logline is as follows: “When gay and straight best friends decide to have a baby together, things get complicated when one of them finds the love of their life.”  And who says Hollywood is out of ideas?

Liz Feldman, writer and producer of CBS’ of the sleazy “Two Broke Girls,” will pen the script.

NBC’s Christian bashing “The New Normal,” which followed the story of a surrogate mother for a gay couple, was cancelled in 2013 after the first season.
