As a change from the comedy project he’s currently involved in, Limp Bizkit, frontman Fred Durst has signed a deal with CBS to star in a new sitcom.
The half-an-hour show, currently titled as ‘Douchebag’ (perhaps autobiographical?), will star Fred as a “rock legend” (oh no, wait, my mistake, not autobiographical after all) trying to juggle his family and his famous-person lifestyle. The program will be written by Matthew Carlson (‘Mr. Sunshine’), who will executive-produce with CBS TV studios-based producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. In addition, Fred’s manager/producer John Schneider will serve as a non-writing producer.
