Fred Durst Developing TV Show About His Early Days With Limp Bizkit
Fred Durst is bringing his life story to the small screen.
According to TV Guide, Durst is developing an hour long drama for the CW called The Noise that would chronicle the rise of a young artist in the ’90s who escapes a less than stellar home life to find popularity with his band, which just so happens to have a very unique sound. As you might recall Limp Bizkit, which formed in 1994, hit it big with their, at the time, unique rap metal sound, earning hits like “Nookie,” “Break Stuff” and their cover of George Michael’s “Faith.”
This is Durst’s, who is a co-executive producer on the script, second attempt at bringing a semi-autobiographical story to the small screen. Back in 2011, he developed and starred in a sitcom for CBS (Radio.com’s parent company) about a rock star who was trying to balance his work and his family. The show never aired.
Over the past few years, Durst has put his focus on Hollywood. He directed two movies, 2007′s The Education of Charlie Banks and 2008′s The Longshots. The frontman also appeared as a bartender on a few episodes of House and had a role in the 2005 NBC apocalypse mini-series Revelations.
Limp Bizkit signed to Cash Money Records, home of Lil Wayne, in 2012 and are slated to release their new album, Stampede of the Disco Elephants, in 2014. It’s the band’s first album since releasing Gold Cobra in 2011.
