Posted on 05/14/2014 6:05:16 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced on Wednesday that it had purchased the rights to a documentary series that will follow the life of Michael Sam. Terms were undisclosed, but sources said that negotiations to make the deal took two months.
Sam became the first openly gay man to be taken in the NFL draft when he was picked Saturday in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams.
Cameras for the network were with Sam when he received the call that he was drafted and will follow him through training camp as he tries to make the team.
The network said the working title for the series is "The Untitled Michael Sam Project."

It won’t draw any viewers that she doesn’t already have.
Well Blowprah certainly loves Baraq...good point!
this will be about as successful as the series on Lindsey lohan...which is to say, not much.
It wasn’t enough that she bashed and lied about Ronald Reagan in “The Butler,” now she has to promote the homosexual “lifestyle.”
Allow me to throw up.
I hope they’re not too tough on him!
Good God, that woman is insufferable.
What he will bring to the long tradition of fruity NFL celebration dances will change the game forever. Finally we will see gyrating self-congratulatory mincing performed by a 250+lb dude and be absolutely correct when we think ‘that guy has to be gay.’
I think this could be described as a “One Trick Pony”, but I could be wrong, maybe his entire ‘appeal’ is not soley based on gayness. So now all the Ram decisions will be scrutinized and catagorized by non professionals. Great.
Every butt slap will be debated.
This story needs proper treatment:
I hope she spends hundreds of millions on producing this worthy series.
A whole series about a guy who stands on the sideline?
This is going to be ENDLESSLY pimped.
And if your company refuse to advertise on it, you’ll be an OBVIOUS Homophbe and bigot!
See how this works?
Its’ working title is “The Tight End that Wasn’t”... Seriously, when this overhyped social experiment gets released before the season starts, she can lead the protests against his obviously bigoted coaches.
Now if that was about a mic’d Vince Lombardi or John McKay, from back in the day, I’d perhaps be interested.
“Every butt slap will be debated.”
And every time a butt slap isn’t bestowed on Sam in an obvious butt slapping situation.
Just think about the first openly gay MLB position player, maybe the most individually judged position in the big three pro-sports. It has to be coming down the line. There will be 4-6 discrete regular chances to judge if pitches inside are intentional and on account of his gayness, not to mention how the ump calls balls and strikes on him.
Anal, teabagging sodomite gets a new show...
“The Untitled Michael Sam Project.”
Make it an action series and call it Rambutt.
PS I had never really thought the struggle of black people for equality to be equivalent to the desire of homosexuals to flaunt their lifestyles.
But if Dohprah says so, it must be so.

Gee, just think a year ago “Capt Courageous” outted himself to his team but didn’t want them to tell
Now we know why . . . $$$
Again, will the NCAA look into the relationship between Sam and his “handlers”?
I knew it.
Now he gets a series?! Insane that in 35 short years, these people have gone from plague status to being the nobility.
What’s next,a night in the Lincoln bedroom?
“Another Nutjob Under Sam”
or ANUS for short
I'd say that's a given. Jason Collins got to sit with the First Uruk Hai at the SOTU.
I hate to think of the things carved into Lincolns Bed by the guests in the past 5 years.
And I assume anyone who doesn’t support homosexuality will be called a racist by Oafrah justlike what she said about people who didn’t support her homosexual Marxist God Obama?
He will be watching from the men's room. He is not an NFL talent. He did only 17 presses at 225. A 4.91 40. A 25" vertical. High school players do better.
Wonder if she paid more than she did for the rights to Tim Tebow’s story. Oh, wait.....
You have to admit, he (or his advisors) is brilliant.
The guy is famous, has a lucrative endorsement deal with Visa Card, and is likely good for several years at NFL “minimum wage” $420,000 for a 7th rounder.
Without the gay thing he’d be selling insurance or used cars likely making about 25 grand a year.
Yep! Every time he gets brushed back or hit the pitcher will be under suspicion of being homophobic.
yeah, I guess it is easy to sell your soul to make a buck. "What's the catch?"
When Doprah saw Sam getting humped by the draft, she paid the pimp Rams to draft him to keep her deal from being instantly blown.
Will Terry Bean produce it?
“Sam the Ram Sacks the QB”
HAHAHAHAHA This whole Al Queerda SAM story is so manufactured. This proves it. First he announces he’s gay to get the guaranteed gay pick. Then, he cries about not getting picked in the first round. NOW Oprah is making a documentary about him!!! Biggest phony fake collection of bovine excrement since global warming and Obama.
I KNEW something was staged when I first saw the draft pick/kiss video. All these professional TV people were clapping and taking video. Sam himself looked over at a camera after one kiss as if to say “did you get that”?
The whole time a “documentary” (reality show) was being filmed. We all know those shows are total set ups. Come on shoving cake into each other’s faces and kissing? No sincere gay man just humbly trying to make it in the NFL would purposely come on that strong right away and allow a TV show to distract him.
Sam knows he isn’t going to make the team unless that is setup too. He certainly isn’t putting maximum effort into football.
I have a dream the Oprah pisses away her billions on crap like this and spends her twilight years in a homeless camp.
The other is, according to a number of young women of his acquaintance, he is not homosexual at all, but a good actor, who used the "gay" thing to cynically enhance his celebrity status and hence his marketability.
If the latter proves out, Oprah could be headed for the pratfall of the ages.
Will the movie be called “the son of Sam”? It fits!
Isn’t Oprah a homosexual male?
Well at least he was drafted by the Rams and not the Packers.
And even insufferable doesn’t quite describe the revulsion.
They cant cut him for the reasons you stated. The Rams will be stuck with him unless he gets hurt walking the sidelines.
Yea, that's really gonna endear him to the coach and rest of the team.......
That distraction's going to get old real fast......
