I normally would leave the news regarding serious hardcore metal musicians to our resident expert TK, especially because I know he is Fred Durst’s biggest fan, like, in the world. I’m not going to say where, but I’m just saying that there’s a “Nookie” tattoo somewhere on TK’s body. But there was no way I could leave this trade news unattended. It’s just too fantastic.

The CW is developing a one hour scripted drama based on Fred Durst’s life.

Just let that wash over you for a moment.

The feelings … it’s like laughing gas mixed with emotional constipation, isn’t it?

Wait, wait, before the high fades and you snort rubber cement to get it back, here’s the EXCLUSIVE description of the show from TV Guide, in the scoop that killed the soul of some poor would-be journalist who probably dreamed of being the one to break the next Watergate:

“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.”

CW should halt production on all of their scripted comedies and just let whoever greenlit this pick up whatever shows they see fit. I mean, don’t actually make any of them, but just give us a half hour a week of a black screen listing the show pitches picked up. I guarantee that it will be funnier than anything that the CW is actually putting on television right now.
