Rob Gronkowski is hoping have more on-screen time than he already gets while playing NFL games, practicing, doing interviews, and endorsing Dunkin' Donuts egg sandwiches.

The Patriots' tight end is ready to star, along with his father and brothers, in an animated TV show lightly based on the family’s life.

First reported by Deadspin, the show, tentatively titled “The Gronks,” is being pitched by the family in hopes of landing a television deal.

The show is likely to include real stories about the Gronkowski brothers – Gordy Jr., Chris, Dan, Rob, and Glenn – along with their father, Gordy Sr. (“Papa Gronk”), in their rise to becoming one of the most well-known modern sports families.

See the trailer for the show and read more about it on Deadspin.com.
