Dave Grohl and Anthony Kiedis Head to the Small Screen

18 Feb

Well, their ideas do, at least. FX is developing two new projects, one produced by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, and another based on Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis’ autobiography Scar Tissue.

According to Rolling Stone Magazine, Grohl has signed on to Executive Produce a sitcom following a band about to make it big but are forced into group therapy to prevent them from breaking up. The show will star comedian Dana Gould, who is also assuming writing duties. Gould’s previous acting credits include MadTV and The Ben Stiller Show, and he was a writer for The Simpsons for seven years.

The TV version of Scar Tissue was originally titled Spider and Son and slated to appear on HBO. The hour long drama, originally written by John Sayles of Lone Star fame, chronicles the life and times Kiedis growing up with his actor/drug dealer to the stars, Blackie Dammett in Hollywood in the 70s. Sayles has reportedly been  dropped from the project, and Kiedis, like Grohl, will take a producing credit.
