Michael Sam Getting Reality Show on OWN

Michael Sam Gets His Own Documentary Series

Michael Sam, who recently made history when he became the first openly gay football player drafted into the NFL, is getting his own documentary series to air on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network. The show will follow Michael as he makes the transition from University of Missouri defensive end to professional football player — Michael was chosen to join the St. Louis Rams in last week's 249th draft. A release describes the show as "a deeply personal, up-close look at the remarkable man at the center of this groundbreaking moment in professional sports."

Oprah herself spoke out in a statement on Wednesday, saying, "We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever. The next real-life story we follow in The Untitled Michael Sam Project promises to spark valuable, important discussion on life in America today. Acceptance and illumination start here."
