A Utah-based NBC affiliate owned by the Mormon Church is refusing to broadcast The New Normal.

The New Normal features a gay couple (played by Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha) trying to start a family and the surrogate mother (Georgia King) who comes to their aid.

After viewing the pilot episode of The New Normal, we have made the decision to keep it off our fall schedule,” Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL-TV parent company Bonneville International, told Deseret News. “For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time.”

Simpson cited crude dialogue, explicit content and offensive characterizations as underlying reasons KSL will not air The New Normal,” the paper reported.

Ellen Barkin, a co-star of the show, called the decision “homophobic.”

“Anyone in Utah interested in @NBCTheNewNormal please clog up @KSL5TV feed 4 their blatantly homophic [sic] decision 2 not air the show #KSLBigots,” she messaged her more than 102,000 Twitter followers.

GLAAD President Herndon Graddick called KSL “out of touch.”

“Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like Modern Family, Glee and Grey's Anatomy,” said Graddick. “While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported LGBT stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country.”

The decision comes a month after the Christian conservative group One Million Moms called for an ad boycott against the show.
