Netflix announced recently that they’re going to be releasing a new series called Greatest Roasts of All Time: Groats, and Tom Brady is signed on to be an executive producer. “Why?” asks every single person ever. Well, we don’t know why someone who quite literally knows nothing about movies, television, comedy, or production would be signed on as an executive producer, but what we do know is that Brady is going to be on of the first people featured in the roast series.
Robbie Praw, the VP of Stand-Up and Comedy Formats at Netflix, welcomed Brady to the team, saying, “We can’t wait to burn three-time Super Bowl-losing quarterback Tom Brady, who only went back to the NFL in order to delay this roast.” He continued, “In all seriousness, it’s a huge thrill to work with the greatest football player of all time on this project. No one’s better at taking hits and still coming out on top, so we know the roast will be a breeze for Brady.”
With this deal in place, along with the $375 million deal he has set up to be a Fox Sports analyst post-playing days, Brady seems to really be setting himself up for whenever the old fuck finally decides to hang it up. One can only hope that whoever ends up roasting Brady on the series does a good job — let’s not spare him simply because he’s the greatest quarterback ever. He’s still the guy that cheated in Super Bowl XXXIX, deflated his footballs, kisses his son on the mouth, didn’t shake Nick Foles’ hand after Super Bowl LII, and got #whitegirlwasted at the Tampa Bay Super Bowl parade. There’s a lot of stuff to work with, and I’m just praying the person who gets to roast that *expletive* does a good job.

Maybe because Executive Producers are just Producers in name? They have no creative control.
