Oprah producing new Gay comedy series for HBO

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Oprah Winfrey is producing a new Gay family comedy for HBO, through her production company, Harpo.

According to Deadline, HBO has put in development These Things Happen, a half-hour comedy based on the first novel by TV writer-producer Richard Kramer (Thirtysomething; My So-Called Life). The pay cable network has optioned the book, published last fall, for the comedy project.

Kramer will write the script and executive produce.

These Things Happen is set in present-day Manhattan and focuses on two couples - one Gay, one straight. They share a 15-year-old son, who lives on the Upper East Side with his mother and doctor stepfather. Trying to get to know his impressive, distant father better, he moves in for a semester with him and his long-time partner, who forms an instant friendship with the boy.

If it's picked up, These Things Happen will join HBO's new Gay-centered drama series, Looking.
