Matthew McConaughey Creates an Animated Series About His Brother for Fox

Matthew McConaughey Has an Animated Brother

Matthew McConaughey is currently teaming up with Fox to develop an animated series based on the life of his brother, Mike, aka "Rooster." Titled Rooster Tales, the series will follow a redneck sheriff who robs the cradle with a much younger Mexican woman — and marries into her huge family of 114. Sounds like Rooster's idea to name his real-life son Miller Lite has finally paid off.

McConaughey will also be executive producing under his J.K. Livin' Productions.

While I've never been a huge fan of the "redneck" stereotype (My Name is Earl and Blue Collar TV come to mind), this does seem like a good fit for Fox which has the monopoly on funny-but-sometimes-off-color cartoons. Perhaps, it can help satisfy fans of King of the Hill since that series went off the air on the network. Plus, there will probably be at least a few appearances from Matthew himself, right?

How about you? Are you interested in McConaughey's new show?
