“The Gronks” may be a cartoon heading to your television sometime soon. According to Deadspin, the Gronkwoski family is pitching an animated series to Hollywood.
The Gronks would be a lightly fictionalized look at adventures of the Gronkowski clan, the five brothers, Gordy Jr., Chris, Dan, Glenn, and Rob, three of whom are in the NFL, and scion Gordy, aka Papa Gronk. Adventures like the time Rob emailed his teacher and told him to suck his dick, or took a Viagra pill before a Las Vegas pool party to impress women with his “semi-boner.”
In all honesty, it sounds a lot better than the umpteenth season of Survivor. Rob, alone, could make for a pretty entertaining TV series. Add in his brothers and fathers, and you could be talking television gold.
The Gronkowskis’ managers, Henry Penzi and Wayne Carmona, are currently shopping the wild idea around the industry. Eventually, the brothers themselves will hit executive offices to sell the idea, which could make for some interesting sales pitches.
