Recently, it was announced that Nene Leakes was teaming up with Ryan Murphy, creator of Glee, for a new show, The New Normal, on NBC. Well, the official trailer has finally dropped and I have to say it looks quite interesting.
The show is about a woman who offers to be a surrogate for a gay couple trying to have a child so she can raise money to go to law school. Nene plays one of the men’s assistant, and is bringing all the sass and neck popping to the role. This reminds me about the portrayal of the angry black female I spoke about in yesterday’s blog post on Sheree Whitfield.
Watch the trailer after the jump and tell me if you think Nene’s character is too stereotypical and if you think she’ll do well.
