The first trailer for Dan Savage's highly anticipated sitcom "The Real O'Neals" is finally here, and it looks like this show is shaping up to be every bit as hilarious as we've been led to believe.

Savage first made the announcement about the sitcom in late January, with the show originally formatted as a semi-autobiographical, single-camera comedy about the activist's young life. Savage is serving as an executive producer of "The Real O'Neals," though the story itself evolved in "a different direction" during development, according to Deadline.

"['The Real O'Neals is] a contemporary take on a seemingly perfect Catholic family, whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed," according Deadline's synopsis. "Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real."

The show hasn't been met without controversy, with a number of conservative groups initially trying to quash the show due to its gay storyline.

"The Real O'Neals" will premiere on ABC in the 2015-2016 season.
