Is there anything that the Gronkowski’s don’t do? New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is a man of many talents, which include catching the ball, partying like a mad man and chugging beers like an All-Pro.
Now, he may be looking to add a TV show to his resume.
According to Deadspin, the Gronkowski family is pitching a reality TV show and the premise is just as amazing as you would think.
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.”
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.”
Before you think that there is no way this show would work, it is important to note that they would have a very capable producer on board.
The report states that Ricky Blitt, a co-executive producer on Family Guy, would be interested in co-writing the project.
If you can add some Family Guy humor with the Gronkowski stories, we would have an instant hit on our hands. The only question is what network would air the show?
We hope that this happens and that we can soon enjoy our weekly dose of The Gronks, so let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
