Fred Durst to signs deal with CBS and CBS TV - Will star in comedy project
Fred Durst has come a long way from his Limp Bizkit frontman days. He has been directing and now looks as though he will star in and produce a comedy series. Deadline reports that Durst has signed his first ever TV deal with CBS and CBS TV Studios. The deal partners him with CBS TV Studios-based producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum on a half-hour comedy project.
The untitled comed (often referred to as Douchebag) has received a script commitment. It centers around "a rock legend looking for balance between his high profile lifestyle and trying to raise a family." The script will be written by Matthew Carlson (Mr. Sunshine) who will executive produce with the Tannenbaums. Durst’s manager/producer John Schneider is serving as a non-writing producer. Durst has only acted in arcs on NBC’s limited series Revelations and Fox’s House. I loved his directing job on Education of Charlie Banks.
