While Weezer will release their new album Everything Will Be Alright in the End on October 7th, frontman Rivers Cuomo has some other things cooking.
According to The Hollywood Report, a Fox TV sitcom called DeTour will be based on his life at Harvard after the first Weezer album was released. He was a full-time student studying English and that is where he met his wife Kyoto.
The sitcom, “tells the story of 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…DeTour would embellish his journey with a fictional character and the small band of misfit friends that make it possible for him to get through his formative years.”
Fox has already ordered a ‘put pilot’ which means they MUST air the episode or it will cost the network.
