NBC Announces New Series From J.J. Abrams & Ryan Murphy

Posted Tuesday May 8, 2012 4:15 PM GMT

Bringing another comedy and drama to their lineup, NBC Studios announced yesterday (May 7) that it has put in orders for two new series from executive producers, J.J. Abrams and Ryan Murphy.

Murphy, who is the creator of "Glee", is bringing a new comedy to the network named "The New Normal" - which is a single-camera set that follows a blended family made up by a gay couple and a surrogate mother.

The show is set to star Andrew Rannells, "The Hangover" actor Justin Bartha, Ellen Barkin and Georgia King. The creative genius will executive produce the new series along with Allison Adler and Dante Di Loreto.

Abrams, the creator of "Lost," will bring his new series "Revolution" into the mix. Eric Kripke created the show, which is set in a world where the energy sources have disappeared.

The new program will feature David Lyons, Billy Burke and Giancarlo Esposito. Abrams will also executive produce the new TV offering with Kripke, Burke and Jon Favreau, who directed "Iron Man."

NBC's new lineup will be revealed during an upfront presentation set to take place on May 14.
