WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Says We'll Love One Big Happy 'Because There's a Lesbian in It'

Ellen may have been the first but she's not the last...

Since Ellen DeGeneres became the first openly lesbian lead character on a sitcom back in 1998, it’s only fitting that she’s the one to executive produce One Big Happy, the new NBC sitcom starring Elisha Cuthbert as a lesbian who decides to have a baby with her best male friend (Nick Zano), but before the EPT stick is even dry, he meets the love his life and spontaneously marries her. The hilarity ensues as the trio attempts to navigate the situation.

The story is based on One Big Happy writer Liz Feldman’s life, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Feldman’s previous writing credits include The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Two Broke Girls, and The Oscars.

DeGeneres discusses One Big Happy in the video, insisting we’ll like it because “there’s a lesbian in it," and she's probably right.
