Fox Is Developing a Comedy Based on Weezer Frontman Rivers Cuomo's Life

rivers_cuomoWeezer's frontman Rivers Cuomo might be getting the Fox sitcom treatment. THR reports that the network has given a put-pilot commitment to DeTour, a single-cam comedy from Psych creator Steve Franks that will focus on "a 30-something rock star who, unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming a massive success." The series will be loosely based on Cuomo's life but star a fictional character "and the small band of misfit friends that make it possible." Weezer's new album Everything Will be Alright in the End is set for an October 7th release.
