Oprah Buys The Rights To Do A Documentary Series On Michael Sam! Get All The Details HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayZportzOprah WinfreyFootballNFLLGBT

Michael Sam will be getting his own documentary series on OWN!

You get a TV show, and YOU get a TV show! EVERYBODY GETS A TV SHOW!!!

Sorry, we were just imagining what goes on in Oprah's brain, because she has a brand new documentary series in the works, and it's about one of the hottest figures in sports right now.

Michael Sam!

The defensive end made a splash this weekend when he was the first openly gay player to EVER be selected in the NFL Draft, and now the Big O plans on telling his entire story as she just bought the rights to do a series on OWN!

Oprah released a statement on the move, 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. I am proud of the focus on authentic storytelling in our new documentary series format. 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."

Michael also released a statement on the docuseries, and he said he's VERY excited to share his story with the world:

"If seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that's great. I am thankful to Oprah for her support and excited to work together."

While the series doesn't have a name or a release date yet, sources say it will most likely be broken up into 6 to 8 segments.

We think this is an AWESOME idea, because if anyone is going to tell Michael Sam's story and do it right, it's going to be Oprah!

    How hard can be understand that the creator didn't use one single molded for us since We come here as Man, Woman, Black, White, Tall, Short, Gay, Straight and the list goes on … So this guy is a Black Gay Tall Man … So what … Nobody need to be tracking him just for that !

    But everyone will. I say, talk to me after he makes the team. His pro day was awful.
