Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is reportedly developing a one-hour drama for American television network, the CW, based on his own life. The one-hour project is titled The Noise and will chronicle the rise to fame of a young frontman in the 90s.
Much like Durst himself, the protagonist of The Noise escapes an unstable home life to begin a wildly successful band with a unique sound, reports TV Guide. The plot may sound familiar to fans of Durst, whose band formed in 1994 and went on to immense success with singles like 2000’s Rollin’.
The drama is being developed through CBS TV Studios, with Durst serving as co-executive producer of the project alongside executive producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, who’ve previously worked on Two and a Half Men, with a script penned by Miles Field.
Durst had previously worked on a sitcom with the Tannenbaums, titled Douchebag, about an aging rock star attempting to balance his celebrity and family life, which never made it to air. Readers can check out a rather poorly edited sneak peek of the series below.
Durst is no stranger to film projects either, having directed 2007’s The Education of Charlie Banks and The Longshots in 2008, both of which were critically panned. Limp Bizkit meanwhile is working on their comeback album slated for a 2014 release, after signing a deal with Cash Money Records.
