NEW YORK (May 14, 2014) The Oprah Winfrey Network plans to produce a documentary series that follows the life of Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team.
The documentary will follows Sams as he works to earn a spot with the St. Louis Rams while under the media microscope.
Sam says 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 say how many episodes it will produce.
