We will definitely be watching this show!

The network ABC has finished off a deal that will net them this new inspiring single camera comedy titled Men in Shorts.

The sitcom will be based on Robbie Rogers, who is the first openly gay man to play on ANY professional sports team in North America!

Here’s the show’s official description:

“[The show will] follows a young pro soccer player who takes one small step out of the closet and one giant leap into the spotlight. The show will include family and workplace comedy.”

Writer Jordon Nardino and showrunner Claudia Lonow are set to write the pilot for the episode, and we’re definitely hoping this show makes to the small screen!
