Oprah’s network plans to follow Sam
Wednesday, May 14, 2014
NEW YORK (AP) — The Oprah Winfrey Network said it plans to produce a documentary series following the life of Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team.
The series will take an up-close look at the man recently drafted by the St. Louis Rams in a groundbreaking moment in professional sports. Cameras will follow the former University of Missouri football player as he works to earn a spot on the Rams while under a media microscope.
Sam said it would be great if his story can lead others to accept who they are and go for their dreams.
OWN did not specify a premiere date for the as-yet-untitled series or how many episodes it will be.
