As Limp Bizkit prepares for the upcoming release of its seventh studio album, frontman Fred Durst is working with The CW to develop a drama series based on his life.

The show, called "The Noise," will chronicle the life of a young man as he flees his volatile home life to create a band that makes it big and breaks through the 1990s music scene, much as Durst did with Limp Bizkit in 1994.

Durst, 43, will serve as executive producer on the project, according to

It's not Durst's first journey into television. He had small roles on a few episodes of the Fox medical drama "House" and the 2005 NBC mini-series "Revelations."

In 2011, he starred in a CBS sitcom called "Douchebag," where he played a washed-up rock star trying to balance his work and home lives, but the series got the axe before it ever aired.

Durst also has a few director creds under his belt with 2007's "The Education of Charlie Banks" and 2008's "The Longshots."

As for Limp Bizkit, the band returned for a brief comeback in 2009 following a four-year hiatus. Known for hits like "Nookie," Break Stuff," and a cover of The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes," the band signed a new deal with Cash Money Records last year and will release a new album, "Stampede of the Disco Elephants," in January 2014.
