Ryan Murphy’s New NBC Comedy Kinda Sounds Like Modern Family

NBC has quickly snapped up Ryan Murphy‘s latest television project, a single-camera comedy that kind of sounds like if Modern Family‘s Cam and Mitchell got their own spin-off. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but nobody likes the smell of desperation.

The show, which Murphy is co-producing and co-writing with Allison Adler (Chuck, Just Shoot Me!), is “a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them start a family,” according to

The duo say the show stems from their own experiences trying to start families, but we’d be surprised if a certain Emmy-dominating ABC comedy didn’t have some connection to NBC paying top dollar this late in the season.
