The former “Bachelor” star, who first publicly announced he was gay on Wednesday, is currently producing an unwritten series for the streaming service, according to a source with knowledge of the project.
Netflix officials had no official comment.
A representative from Underwood said he was unable to comment on the matter.
The news comes the same day Underwood first spoke about his sexuality with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.
“I ran away from myself for a long time, I hated myself for a long time. I’m gay. I came to terms with it earlier this year, and the next step in all of this was letting people know,” said Underwood. “I’m the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. It means the world to me.”
Underwood, a former NFL player, starred on season 23 of the ABC dating show.
The past few years have been big for Netflix’s unwritten realm, where a number of traditional reality series (i.e., outside of reality competition and the food sections) have broken through, although the library of streamers of original offerings continued to swell. “Selling Sunset” is arguably the biggest real success to date and was extended by two seasons last month.
