“If you’re gay then how did you and mom have sex?” asks 14-year old Ellie. Although NBC has canceled it’s one-season-run gay dad TV show “The New Normal”. It has already produced a new gay dad comedy starring the boyish Sean Hayes from the hit show “Will & Grace”. According to 429 Magazine, Hayes’ role as Jack McFarland in “Will & Grace” is considered a milestone for LGBT media portrayals. Before “Will & Grace,” LGBT characters were rarely a part of the main cast, as many of them were given minor roles and LGBT themes were not prominent on television.

In “Sean Saves the World” Hayes plays Sean Isler, a divorced from a woman gay dad, raising a teenage daughter played by Sami Isler. Linda Lavin plays Sean’s “ready to give advice” controlling mother. “Sean Saves the World” will air Thursdays this fall.
