The CW Developing Limp Bizkit TV Series ‘The Noise’ with Fred Durst

In what might be the most terrifying Halloween news of all, it seems ’90s rap rock stalwart Limp Bizkit may have risen from the grave to attack The CW. Forgotten frontman Fred Durst has entered development with the network to craft a new drama approximating the origins of the “Nookie” band in ‘The Noise,’ but should we have any faith it will keep rollin’?

We can already feel our teen selves reaching through time to slap us across the face for writing this, but TVGuide reports that Durst’s ‘The Noise’ will follow the rise of a young 1990s artist who flees a difficult home life and ends up forming a fervently popular band with its own unique sound. Those who haven’t blocked out the ’90s altogether will recall that Durst himself rose to prominence with rap-metal band Limp Bizkit, which itself formed in 1994 and infected our earholes for years to come with “Nookie,” “Break Stuff,” “Rearranged” and signature staple cover of George Michael’s “Faith.”

Durst himself will act as a co-executive producer on the script, alongside Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, with Miles Feld on board to write through CBS TV Studios. For those worried about Durst’s behind-the-scenes capabilities, at least, the former Limp Bizkit frontman in recent years developed CBS sitcom ‘Douchebags,’ even directing the 2007 Jesse Eisenberg film ‘The Education of Charlie Banks.’ Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you are.

Well, hands up or hands down? Even in the development phase, would you be interested in a semi-autobiographical CW series about Limp Bizkit’s rise to fame?
