Ryan Murphy has found a husband for Book of Mormon‘s Andrew Rannells.
The Glee boss has tappedHangover actor Justin Bartha to play Rannells’ better half in The New Normal, his single-camera sitcom pilot about  a blended family made up of a gay couple and the surrogate helping them have a baby of their own.
Georgia King has been cast as their surrogate, Goldie, and, as previously reported, Ellen Barkin co-stars as her glamorous grandma.
Murphy will direct the pilot and serve as an EP alongside Ali Adler and Dante Di Loreto.
Normal marks Bartha’s second stab at sitcom success. His first, NBC’s Teachers, was axed in 2006 after just six episodes.
