As we all know by now ABC TV has picked up a pilot created and executive produced by Dan Savage. And while the show itself remains untitled, but we do have a few details.
On the comedy side, the untitled Savage comedy is a single-camera semi-autobiographical entry based on the LGBT activist/boundary-pushing columnist’s life. It centers on a picture-perfect family that is turned upside down when the youngest son comes out of the closet. What seems like the end of their idyllic life turns out to be the beginning of a bright new chapter when everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real. Savage is responsible for organizing the It Gets Better photo campaign following the passage of Prop. 8 and numerous other anti-gay legislation.
Well the Family Research Council’s Grand Dragon, I mean “President” Tony Per-KKK-ins is SHOCKED at the fact that a “vulgar” and “athiest homosexual” like our Danny boy will be allowed on television to push the dreaded “homosexual agenda.
“Dan Savage says ‘it gets better,’ but don’t be surprised if viewers get bitterafter ABC’s newest program. The Disney-owned network, for years a shill for the LGBT agenda, is taking their activism to amazing lows with its plans to bring the controversial ‘sex therapist’ to life in a regular feature. His dark and vile attacks on Christians have been well chronicled by Savage himself (so vulgar most are unprintable). Lately, though, the open atheist homosexual has taken a break from harassing high schoolers and Republicans to focus on this new fall sitcom, which, producers say, ‘will follow the younger years of Savage’s life and the experiences of his family following his decision to come out of the closet.’ As desperate as the networks are to out-shock the competition, does ABC really want a pilot show based on an anti-Christian bully like Dan Savage?” – Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via email
Perhaps Tony is a bit jealous. But I hear American Horror Story is looking into adding plotline on his life in Season 5.
Kirk Cameron is slated to play Perkins.
