Exclusive: Limp Bizkit Rocker Fred Durst Developing Drama at The CW
Fred Durst once did it all for the nookie. Now he's doing it all for The Noise. The CW is developing a one-hour drama project with the Limp Bizkit frontman based on his life.
The Noise, created by Durst, chronicles the rise of a young artist in the 1990s who escapes a tumultuous home life and forms a wildly popular band with a unique sound. Durst, of course, hit it big with his rap metal band Limp Bizkit, which formed in 1994 and went on to superstardom with hits like "Nookie," "Break Stuff" and their cover of George Michael's "Faith."
Durst is a co-executive producer on the script, while Miles Feld is writing. Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum are executive producers, through CBS TV Studios.
This marks the second time Durst has worked on a TV series about his life. Two years ago CBS developed the sitcom Douchebag, also with Durst and the Tannenbaums, about a rock star balancing his wild ways and his young family.
As the popularity of rap metal waned, Durst has focused on film and TV in recent years. He directed the 2007 feature The Education of Charlie Banks and 2008's The Longshots, plus earlier this year executive produced the feature Pawn Shop Chronicles.
