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?
