Limp Bizkit Singer Fred Durst Developing Autobiographical TV Drama for The CW
In addition to his career as a musician, Fred Durst has also ventured into TV projects over the past few years. Now, according to TV Guide, the Limp Bizkit frontman will develop a one-hour TV drama called ‘The Noise’ for The CW. The show will be based on his real-life experiences.
‘The Noise,’ created by Durst, is the story of a musician in the 1990s who forms a band that becomes very successful. That, of course, is what happened with Limp Bizkit. Durst is a co-executive producer along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum.
The trio also previously worked on a show about Durst’s life for CBS. The sitcom ‘Douchebag,’ which was about a rock star balancing his wild lifestyle with a young family, never made it to air.
Durst’s other TV appearances include guest spots on ‘House’ and a role in the mini-series ‘Revelations. He has also directed a couple of movies: 2007’s ‘The Education of Charlie Banks,’ which featured Jesse Eisenberg (‘The Social Network’) and 2008’s ‘The Longshots,’ starring Ice Cube.
In addition to his TV work, Durst is keeping busy with Limp Bizkit activities. The band signed with Cash Money Records earlier this year and released a video for ‘Ready to Go,’ which features Lil Wayne. It’s from the album ‘Stampede of the Disco Elephants,’ which is set to be released in January.
Limp Bizkit are currently on tour in Australia. In early November they head to Europe for a month’s worth of shows. They also have a European trek slated for February of 2014.
