Ryan Murphy joins the gay parenting bonanza with this new comedy about two men and their surrogate. It stars Ellen Barkin as a big big bigot, the cute guy from National Treasure and The Hangover, and one of the dudes from The Book of Mormon which is funny because a Mormon-owned Utah tv station is refusing to air the series. It premieres on NBC on September 11. Plenty of winces between the laughs. "You guys are gross." If you have trouble viewing, watch it here.
The unstoppable gay surrogate boom continues in September with the release of Michael Lowenthal's new novel The Paternity Test, which Stephen McCauley calls, “A good, old-fashioned page-turner and a sophisticated look at the mysteries of long-term love and the convoluted reasons for wanting a child. Lowenthal writes with intelligence and passion and made me care a great deal about the fates of his flawed, fascinating characters.”
