Well known for rocking out as the lead singer of Limp Bizkit, Fred Durst is expanding his creative horizons by developing a somewhat autobiographical drama for The CW, TVGuide.com exclusively reports.
Titled ‘The Noise,’ the one-hour drama created by Durst “chronicles the rise of a young artist in the 1990s who escapes a tumultuous home life and forms a wildly popular band with a unique sound.” Of course, the band would resemble Limp Bizkit, who was known for songs like ‘Nookie,’ ‘Break Stuff,’ and a cover of George Michael’s ‘Faith.’
Along with Durst as co-executive producer, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum will join him as executive producers. In addition, Miles Field is tackling the writing.
As shocking as this sounds (who would think of a TV show by Durst?), this isn’t the first time the singer has developed a show based on his life. In 2011, Durst teamed up with CBS and the Tannenbaums for the sitcom ‘Douchebag,’ which told the story of a man balancing his life as a rocker and a family man, in addition to controlling his wild side.
For awhile now, Durst has been stepping behind the camera by directing different features, including 2007’s ‘The Education of Charlie Banks,’ 2008’s ‘The Longshots,’ and most recently, ‘Pawn Shop Chronicles.’
Now that he’s past doing it all for the nookie, what do you think of Durst’s upcoming project? Do you think it would last on The CW? More importantly, who would be perfect to play Durst? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments.
