Foo Fighters Announce Special Record Store Day Gig, Album

FX is adding another rock star to its potential lineup.

The male-skewing cable network is developing a half-hour comedy with Foo Fighters' singer-songwriter Dave Grohl and comedian Dana Gould that would revolve around a rock band on the verge of stardom and breaking up.

The untitled project would revolve around the band as they seek professional assistance from a couples' therapist on the brink of divorce. Gould will write and exec produce alongside Grohl, 3 Arts' Tom Lassally and Gerber Pictures' Dave Becky and Bill Gerber.

The project joins an FX development slate that also features "Scar Tissue," a drama from Red Hot Chili Peppers' frontman Anthony Kiedis. Previously in development at HBO, the drama hails from "Entourage" co-executive producers Mike Benson and Marc Abrams, who will executive produce through their Catapult 360 shingle, alongside Kiedis, Laura Rister from Untitled Entertainment and Jason Weinberg (Enlightened). John Sayles, who penned a previous version of the drama before FX picked it up, will not continue with the project.

The news also comes as FX is ramping up "Strangely Uplifting," a late-night show with comedian/singer/author Russell Brand for an April bow.
