Matthew McConaughey is keeping it in the family: He's making an animated TV comedy based on his oil man brother's life.

Rooster Tales, named after Matthew's big bro, Michael "Rooster" McConaughey — the star of TruTV's oil reality show, Black Gold — follows the world of a beer-swilling, redneck sheriff who marries a much younger woman from Mexico.

The man soon realizes that he's gained more than just a wife — he also gets a family of 114 members, reports Variety.
