We've missed Robbie Rogers. Thankfully, he'll soon be coming to a TV near you -- sort of.
The openly gay soccer player recently closed a deal for "Men In Shorts," a single-camera comedy set to air on ABC that reportedly stems from the gay athlete's coming out story.
Rogers, who came out in 2013, was the first openly gay player in a North American sports league.
According to Out, the "Men In Shorts" storyline involves a young soccer player who makes the decision to come out of the closet and Rogers has signed on as a producer. Entertainment Weekly notes the show "follows a young pro soccer player who takes one small step out of the closet and one giant leap into the spotlight."
