Oct 14, 2011 at 11:16 a.m. ET

Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst is developing a new CBS comedy and the tentative title is, well, interesting -- Douchebag.

Don't call Fred Durst a douchebag -- unless you're referring to the new CBS comedy he's been tapped to star in.

Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst has always lobbied to be respected in the music industry, but now he's tackling the TV world?

No, we're not kidding. He's said to be headed to the small screen in a new CBS comedy that is tentatively being titled Douchebag.

According to news coming from Deadline, Fred Durst has signed a deal with CBS and CBS TV Studios to develop a half-hour sitcom.

The Limp Bizkit leader will have his hand in a good deal of the Douchebag project, which includes starring in and producing the show.

The show is currently working with the not-so TV friendly title Douchebag, but it's still in early stages and will likely change -- or will it?

According to the report, CBS is looking over the script that features the story of a "rock legend looking for balance between his high-profile lifestyle and trying to raise a family."

The script is being penned by Matthew Carlson of Mr. Sunshine and he'll also serve as executive producer.

Fred Durst does boast directing credits to his name for The Education of Charlie Banks and The Longshots and he's made a TV guest appearance on House -- but that's nothing compared starring in your own vehicle.

Would you watch Douchebag starring Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst on CBS or should he just stick to the music world?
