Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters frontman and ex-Nirvana drummer, will participate in a TV project involving rock music. Some may think this is not big news. However, something new is about to happen in Grohl’s career. According to Deadline Hollywood, Grohl is going to be executive producer of an upcoming sitcom for the FX channel.
It will be a 30-minute show, created by and starring Dana Gould, who also produced and starred in the 2010 ABC pilot, ‘Nolan Knows Best’. The comedian is a Foo Fighters fan and decided to approach Dave Grohl for the project due to his being known as a very funny guy and the fact that Grohl is friends with several comedians. The musician’s particular sense of humor can easily be found in some of the music videos by his band, like Learn to Fly and the latest White Limo.
The plot of the comedy-to-be will feature a rock band struggling to stay together just when they are about to reach huge notoriety, leading the components to seek professional help in order not to break up. Unfortunately, they will find a misanthropic therapist who specializes in couples therapy, who is himself about to divorce his wife.
There is no indication whether or not the nicest man in rock will make an appearance in the sitcom or if the latter will feature some of his music released by the Foo Fighters or by any of his side projects.
Dave Grohl surely has a predisposition to exploration. As a matter of fact, besides currently being the Foo Fighters frontman, he also has developed different side projects during his career. The most influential one is the recent superband, Them Crooked Vultures, which features John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age together with Grohl.
He also participated in a variety of collaborations with Tenacious D, Queens of the Stone Age, David Bowie, The Prodigy, Paul McCartney, and Cage the Elephant, just to cite some. Singing and playing has not been the only activity for the 43-year-old artist; he has also given voice to some television and movie characters in ‘The Muppets’ (2011), ‘Metalocalypse’, and the animation movie, ‘Daria-Is It Fall Yet?’.
The movie, ‘Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny’, features Grohl playing Satan. He has also played an uncredited role in the episode ‘Pusher’ of the X-Files TV series.
