The first pair of videos is from The New Normal, which stars Book of Mormon‘s Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha, who you may recognize from the National Treasure franchise. Ellen Barkin (swoon) and Georgia King co-star. The show centers around Rannells and Bartha’s characters — a gay couple — who are seeking a surrogate (King) to birth their baby. The show comes from Ryan Murphy, who created Glee. It’s set to air this Fall on Tuesdays at 9:30 pm EST.
The next two clips come from Animal Practice, which will air Wednesdays at 8 pm EST. It centers around a veterinarian played by Justin Kirk (Weeds) who treats his animal patients better than the humans around him. It co-stars comedian and MadTV alum Bobby Lee, Kym Whitley and Tyler Labine. It looks promising, even though having a monkey has a full time cast member is a pretty cheap ploy for laughs.
Starring Anthony Anderson, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Tempestt Bledsoe, Guys With Kids is about — you guessed it — three fathers who face the daily challenges of daily parenthood. From the few minutes of previews provided, it doesn’t look great. But check it out for yourself. The show will air on Wednesdays at 8:30 pm EST.
In Save Me, Anne Heche plays Beth Waring, wife, and mother to an ill-adjusted teen-age daughter. Oh, also Beth thinks she’s a prophet of God. The show co-stars Michael Landes, Alexandra Breckenridge, Heather Burns and Madison Davenport. Check out a pair of clips below!
And finally, here’s 1600 Penn, which finds Bill Pullman as the U.S. President and Jenna Elfman as the First Lady. Book of Mormon standout stars Josh Gad also stars, who will also serve as writer and executive producer. NBC ordered 13 episodes of the single-camera comedy.
