Check out the cast of The New Normal in this new feature for Vogue magazine’s October 2012 issue, which features cover gal Keira Knightley.
The show’s creator Ryan Murphy spoke with the mag about the series and its stars Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha, Georgia King, Ellen Barkin, NeNe Leakes, and Bebe Wood.
“Andrew’s character is clearly me,” Ryan said. “Ali Adler, who is the co-creator, is very good at writing me, which is interesting to read. I’m like, ‘Really? I say that?’ It’s a mind trip.”
“Of course we tested it with an audience in Burbank,” Ryan said of a scene in the pilot where two male characters kiss. “And it was the lowest-testing scene in the pilot. Everybody was like, ‘You are going to have to cut that scene if you want to get picked up.’ But then NBC said, ‘Do not touch it. We love it. It’s important.’ And I thought, Wow, it’s a different world than when I was fifteen, watching Paul Lynde on Hollywood Squares.”
