Hey, children of the 90s: remember watching TRL with Carson Daly and seeing the music video for Limp Bizkit’s “Nookie”? Those were the days. That’s when MTV still had a little bit of rebellion in it. Sigh.

Fred Durst, the Limp Bizkit frontman, is getting involved in show biz in a different way. Believe it or not, according to Deadline, Durst inked a television deal with CBS to produce a comedy occasionally referred to as Douchebag, which centers on a rock star who tries to balance commitments to his crazy rock life and raising a family. It’s unclear as to whether or not it’ll be autobiographical, but if it’s called “Douchebag,” I have a few concerns about Durst’s self-esteem. Hang in there, man.
