NeNe Leakes has landed a role on a series everyone can at least admit is scripted.
The Real Housewife of Atlanta, who actually hasn't been awful as a swim team coach on Glee, will team up again with Ryan Murphy for The New Normal.
A comedic pilot, the show focuses on a gay couple - Book of Mormon's Andrew Rannells and The Hangover's Justin Bartha - who uses a surrogate mother to start a family. Ellen Barkin also plays a role and Leakes will recur as a character named Rocky.
Murphy created Glee and will serve as a producer on The New Normal.
