While you were leaving the nineties behind, moving to the city, and getting into God Speed You! Black Emperor or whatever, Fred Durst, he did it all for the nookie, was still back there chugga-wugging along, giving voice to angry suburban bros everywhere. They are making more of them every day! (Actually, he took a little break to work in film, but nobody cares about that.) So it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that Durst has been granted entry into that essential hallmark of American mass culture, the network sitcom. He has just signed a deal with CBS to both produce and star in a half-hour “comedy,” aptly titled Douchebag.
The untitled comedy, sometimes referred to as Douchebag, has received a script commitment. It centers around a rock legend [ed: if you say so!] looking for balance between his high profile lifestyle and trying to raise a family.
I hope it goes better than Durst’s real life marriage. At least it’s not a reality show?
