Dave Grohl Is Making a Sitcom

By February 7, 2012

Dave Grohl is coming off an amazing year. 2011 saw the release of Wasting Light, the first Foo Fighters album to go to No. 1. Plus, two of its singles, "Rope" and Walk," lodged major time at the top of the Billboard Rock Songs chart. (A third single, "These Days," is currently at No. 2 for a fourth week in a row.) So, life's good for Grohl -- and soon he may be part of a TV show, although he won't be starring in it.

Last week, Deadline Hollywood reported that Grohl will be executive producing an untitled sitcom about a rock band. In the show, a band is about to hit the big time, but they're also in danger of breaking up. In the hopes of staying together, they hire a marriage counselor who's close to getting divorced. In other words, it sounds like a comedy version of Some Kind of Monster.

The sitcom is being developed through FX, which has made its name over the last years for its smart, edgy comedies like Louie, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Archer. And Grohl's not the only rock star who's turning his attention to TV: Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst revealed last year that he's developing a sitcom that he'll star in. Plenty of rappers have branched out into film and television: Why not rockers?
