Patriots Rob Gronkowski & family pitching animated show [video]


Are you ready for an animated version of New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and his family? Per Deadspin, the family is pitching a show that will focus on Rob, his four brothers and their dad. Hijinks to ensue.


We’re told the concept is being shopped around by by the Gronkowskis’ managers, Henry Penzi and Wayne Carmona, but the heavy lifting will come in the offseason, when the plan is to have the entire Gronk family walk in on pitch meetings and “instantly sell it.”

One name supposedly interested in co-writing the project with the Gronkowskis is longtime TV writer Ricky Blitt. If it comes to fruition, the New England synergy will be off the charts: Blitt is a co-executive producer on Family Guy, while both Penzi and Carmona have worked with Mark Wahlberg, with Penzi coming across like a real-life Turtle.
