Sean Hayes close to returning to a TV series

HollywoodNews.com: What terrific news: Not only is Emmy winner Sean Hayes close to finalizing a return to series TV, but he’d play a gay man raising a son with his partner.

This may not seem like a big deal since we have Cam and Mitchell raising a daughter on Modern Family, but it was just 30 years ago that Tony Randall’s originally gay character on the series Love, Sidney was made to be more asexual than anything else.

Thank God times have changed!

Sean, of course, played gay man Jack McFarland on Will & Grace for eight seasons and was even a dad in later seasons when he learned that his experience as a sperm donor resulted in a son with a character played by Rosie O’Donnell!

Entertainment Weekly reports that the new sitcom, which would air on NBC, is near a deal to sign Rescue Me co-creator Peter Tolan and his writer partner Michael Wimer.

Let’s hope this show happens – and soon!
