    "Rooster Tales" will reportedly follow the adventures of a beer-drinking, redneck sheriff who marries a younger woman from Mexico. However, the man soon sees his wife comes with a catch – her 114-member family.

    "My brother's life is so unbelievable, we had to animate it," Matthew told the Hollywood trade paper.

    The real-life Rooster will also executive produce the series with his brother.

    However, this isn't Rooster's first Hollywood venture – he appeared in the TruTV reality series "Black Gold." He also had a small part in Matthew's 1998 film "The Newton Boys."

    Rooster previously earned headlines in 2006 when he named his second child Miller Lyte McConaughey.
