It was back in 1997 that the character Ellen DeGeneres played on her self-titled ABC sitcom came out as a lesbian.
DeGeneres, now one of television's top talk show hosts, is returning to her sitcom roots but behind the scenes this time.
DeGeneres is one of the executive producers of One Big Happy, a comedy pilot ordered by NBC this week.
The comedy is about a lesbian and her straight male best friend who decide to have a baby together. But things get a bit complicated when during this process, one of them meets the love of their life.
