A comedy series based on the anything-but-ordinary life of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo? Yep! FOX has given the greenlight to a series about the singer.
DeTour will be a coming-of-age story which follows the life of a 30-something rocker who walks away from the spotlight at the height of fame so he can experience the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming famous, so says The Hollywood Reporter. So it's sort of like a reverse coming-of-age tale, since he got famous and then takes a step back.
Cuomo hiatused from Weezer eight years ago. He went to Harvard and lived in the dorms.
What a life, right? We have to tune in.
Will you tune in and take a DeTour with this series based on the life of Rivers Cuomo? Notice the pun in the title?
