One Million Moms (OMM) is taking on NBC and its new fall season family show from Glee’s Ryan Murphy, “The New Normal,” claiming the comedy will be promoting “moral decay in the public airwaves.” Monica Cole, Director of One Million Moms, spoke with the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer yesterday and told him One Million Moms has asked NBC to not air “The New Normal” because it is “continuing to attack Christian values, conservative values, the traditional family.” Cole adds, “You cannot recreate the biological will.”
Fischer, the public face of the certified anti-gay hate group, American Family Association, told Cole that the show “shows you how subversive Hollywood is when it comes to undermining our values.”
Cole, who says the show is about “two homosexuals” who hire a surrogate to start a family, added, “the moral decay in public airwaves is continuing.”
NBC, for their part, have not responded to OMM but the NBC website describes ”The New Normal” thusly:
These days, families come in all forms – single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors… It’s 2012 and anything goes. Bryan (Andrew Rannells, “Girls,” “The Book of Mormon”) and David (Justin Bartha, “The Hangover”) are a Los Angeles couple, and they have it all. Well, almost. With successful careers and a committed, loving partnership, there is one thing that this couple is missing: a baby. And just when they think the stars will never align, enter Goldie (Georgia King, “One Day”), an extraordinary young woman with a checkered past. A Midwestern waitress and single mother looking to escape her dead-end life and small-minded grandmother (Emmy and Tony Award-winner Ellen Barkin), Goldie decides to change everything and move to L.A. with her precocious eight-year-old daughter. Desperate and broke – but also fertile – Goldie quickly becomes the guys’ surrogate and quite possibly the girl of their dreams. Surrogate mother, surrogate family.
Ryan Murphy 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 New Normal” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ryan Murphy Productions.
