Fox, McConaughey Team on Rooster


Fox has teamed with Matthew McConaughey to develop an animated TV comedy based on his brother’s life, says Variety.

“Rooster Tales” follows the world of a beer-swilling, redneck sheriff who marries a much younger woman from Mexico. The man soon realizes, however, that he’s gained not only a wife but an entire clan — 114 members and counting.

“My brother’s life is so unbelievable, we had to animate it,” executive producer McConaughey said. Twentieth Century Fox TV is behind the project, which is currently in script stage.

Also executive producing are Mike “Rooster” McConaughey, Mark Gustawes and writer Kell Cahoon (“Psych”).
