Watch: Trailer for Sean Hayes’ New Gay Sitcom

NBC announced it will pick up the Will & Grace star's sitcom about a recently divorced gay father.

This weekend, it was announced that television networks will be pulling the plugs on a handful of gay-centric and gay-loved shows. ABC decided to cancel Happy Endings, and NBC canned both Smash and one of my personal favorites, The New Normal. On the upside, we still have Mitch and Cam, and NBC will be airing a new show starring Will & Grace‘s Sean Hayes.

In it, Hayes plays a recently divorced father who’s trying to strike a balance between a busy job and homelife, where he’s raising his teenage daughter and  contending with a cranky mom, played by Alice‘s Linda Lavin. You can check out the trailer below. It looks pretty promising — if you can look beyond the awkward laugh track. What do you think? Excited for this one?
