Fred Durst

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is set to produce and star in a new CBS sitcom, playing the part of a famous rocker struggling to juggle his high-octane lifestyle with the more homely task of raising a family. Given that Durst is a father of two and err… in a band, the show might end up like ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, with art reflecting life, so to speak. Probably not, though.

Tentatively bearing the title ‘Douchebag’, reports say the show will be scripted by film and TV writer Matthew Carlson, who has previously penned episodes of ‘Malcolm In The Middle’ and the US version of ‘Men Behaving Badly’. So who knows, ‘Douchebag’ could prove better than it sounds. Probably not, though.
