Oprah Winfrey has been moved by the story of Michael Sam, the openly gay football player who was recently drafted into the NFL, and will feature him in a new real-life series on her Oprah Winfrey Network.

Much like she did with a real-life story of Lindsay Lohan, Oprah says cameras will document Sam's life as he prepares to start training camp as a St. Louis Rams rookie. Oprah says the still-untitled project "promises to spark valuable, important discussion on life in America today." (Deadline Hollywood)
