Oprah to tell Sam's story

Michael Sam's efforts to become the first openly gay football player to earn a spot in the NFL will be the subject of a series on the Oprah Winfrey Network.




The Oprah Winfrey Network says 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 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 how many episodes it will be.
