NBC on Friday gave a series order to lesbian-led comedy One Big Happy.

According to Deadline, NBC ordered 6 episodes of the sitcom expected to premiere as part of the network's midseason lineup.

The show – produced by Ellen DeGeneres – centers around a best friend pairing of a lesbian woman (played by Elisha Cuthbert; Happy Endings) and a straight man (Nick Zano; What I Like About You) who decide to have a baby together. A new kind of family is born when Zano's character marries another woman (Kelly Brook). Entertainment Weekly has already dubbed the show “NBC's next New Normal.”

One Big Happy is written and executive produced by Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls), who is openly gay. Feldman previously put in a two-year stint at DeGeneres' daytime talk show.

DeGeneres' production company, A Very Good Production, is also reportedly working on a comedy series starring DeGeneres' wife of 5 years, actress Portia de Rossi. The unnamed comedy about dueling sisters, one of whom will be played by de Rossi, is also heading to NBC.
