NFL star Rob Gronkowski, a standout tight end for the New England Patriots, has a new TV show. Deadline.com reports that “Gronk” will host Nickelodeon’s “Crashletes,” a new show featuring viral sports clips.
The series is one of two new sports-themed shows unveiled by Nickelodeon as it kicks off the upfronts, joining a skateboarding show, working title “Jagger Eaton’s Mega Life,” a docu-series following the 15-year-old skateboard phenom.
The cable channel ordered 20 episodes of each show, both of which are due to roll out later in 2016. Both shows come from Rob Dyrdek and Shane Nickerson of Superjacket Productions.
Cyma Zarghami, President, Viacom Kids and Family Group, said: “Nick has a long history in kid reality, beginning with game shows like ‘Double Dare’ and ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple.’ ‘Crashletes’ and ‘Jagger Eaton’ allow us to connect the audience via real and authentic people and a different kind of storytelling that is fresh and exciting.”
