Last night in Beverly Hills, the first night of the annual PaleyFest: Fall TV Preview Parties commenced with a screening of the new NBC sitcom, The New Normal followed by a panel with cast members Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha, Georgia King, Bebe Wood, NeNe Leakes and Executive Producer/Co-Creator Ali Adler. (Cast member Ellen Barkin and Co-Creator Ryan Murphy were not present for the event). 

Before the night kicked off, AfterElton grabbed a few minutes on the red carpet with The New Normal crew to talk controversy, find out who has an impressive collection of eyeglasses and what surprising secrets co-stars Rannells and Bartha have discovered about one another.
