Sterling Sulieman has booked a recurring role on NBC's new comedy series, The New Normal.

In The New Normal, an LA-based successful gay couple wants to have a baby. To assist, they enlist the help of a single Midwestern mother and waitress, who has moved to L.A. with her own family, and eventually becomes the gay couple's surrogate.

Sulieman will play a character named Clint, described as "the Republican EMT brother" of the assistant (named Rocky) to one half of the gay couple. And who's playing Rocky, the assistant? NeNe Leakes - best known as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Sulieman's resume is loaded with TV work; currently, you can catch him on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars.

The New Normal is scheduled to premiere on NBC on September 11, 2012, at 9:30/8:30c.

    Watch this show be a hit, watch, cause I can't stand the sound of her voice, her affect, her entire presentation, she was nails on a chalk board to me, but I bet this will be a huge hit just cause I can't stand Housewives of ATL!!!

    I was looking forward to "The New Normal" until I found out that no-talent pile of crap NeNe Leakes was going to be a co-star. Ryan Murphy must be really confident if he was willing to cast such a polarizing figure in a show that already deals with a controversial subject.

    Nene got the role because she killed on Glee. She may not be the best actress, but she can certainly deliver funny lines with flair. The concept of this show is so plain and uninteresting to me, but I might check out the first ep just to see.
