Looks like we won’t be getting a that docu-series staring Michael Sam. The OWN network has pulled the plug on the project, for now.
The now shelved show was suppose to give viewers and fans an inside look at the the first ever openly gay athlete to be drafted in the NFL.
“After today’s meeting with the Rams, we collectively feel it is best to postpone the project,” Cameron Weiss, Sam’s agent, said in a statement obtained by E! News.
“This will allow for Michael to have a total focus on football, and will ensure no distractions to his teammates. Everybody involved remains committed to this project and understands its historical importance as well as its positive message.”
OWN had met with the Rams as well and ultimately agreed that it would be best to postpone the project “allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dream of making the team.”
“OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. It’s clear that we, along with the world, recognize the important opportunity that Michael now has in this moment. We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams.”
To bad Michael was so excited about about the news that she tweeted, “Looking forward to sharing my life and journey on @OWNTV with friends, family , and my faithful supporters.” I feel like their still more in the works for Michael and OWN we just have to wait and see!
Looking forward to sharing my life and journey on @OWNTV with friends, family , and my faithful supporters
Oprah Winfrey also released a statement about the good news. “We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever. I am proud of the focus on authentic storytelling in our new documentary series format. The next real-life story we follow in The Untitled Michael Sam Project promises to spark valuable, important discussion on life in America today. Acceptance and illumination start here.”
Anthony Anderson will star along with Tracee Ellis Ross and Laurence Fishburne in the new ABC comedy Black-ish.
The show is centered around Anthony and Tracee’s character trying to raise 2 black children in the sub-burbs and will be apart of ABC’s new fall line up.
Here is a small blurb about the show.
Andre Johnson has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow, four kids, and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad, Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.
Shonda Rhimes has created another obsession for America with How To Get Away With Murder
Viola Davis stars as professor Annalisa Keating who seems to have a reputation for being tough on her students. Nicknamed “The Shooter” Keating has a rather unorthodox way of teaching her students.
The brilliant, charismatic and seductive Professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) gets entangled with four law students from her class “How to Get Away with Murder.” Little do they know that they will have to apply what they learned to real life, in this masterful, sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, executive producers of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”
Judging from the explosive trailer the show is filled with drama, sex, lies, and murder. Makes you really want to find out how far will her students go to make the grade?
How To Get Away With Murder will debut this fall on ABC at 10 p.m. after Scandal.
Even with a lack luster premiere first episode Love & Hip Hop Atlanta viewer ratings are better than expected.
Pulling in 3.8 million viewers during its first airing the first episode focus mainly on Mimi Faust and the story behind her sex tape. Claiming that the tape was stolen from Nikko’s bag in a bag checked at the airport, but really who checks a camera?
Even though the scenes seemed painfully forced season 3 was ranked #1 with adults 18 – 49. With the help of the second airing the reality show pulled in another 2 million views bring the total to 5.8 million viewers in one night. No doubt Mimi’s sex tape scandal had a lot to do with it.
No telling if the ratings will continue to have success with the ratings only time will tell. I hope things getting better because from the looks of the previews it all seems very dry.
