Default Dave to exec-produce a comedy for FX

So reports Deadline..

EXCLUSIVE: FX is developing a half-hour comedy created by and starring comedian Dana Gould and executive produced by Foo Fighters’ lead vocalist/songwriter Dave Grohl. Gould is writing/executive the project, which centers on a rock band on the verge of mega-stardom who finds itself on the verge of breaking up and is forced to seek professional help in a last-ditch effort to stay together. Unfortunately, they end up with a misanthropic couple’s therapist from Agoura on the brink of divorce. Gould, a fan of Grohl’s music, approached him about joining the project. Grohl has a reputation of being one of the funniest rock stars who is friends with a lot of comedians. In addition to Gould and Grohl, executive producing the project are 3 Arts’ Tom Lassally and Dave Becky and Bill Gerber of Gerber Pictures. Gould previously wrote, executive produced and starred in the 2010 ABC pilot Nolan Knows Best. He is currently writing feature Moon People for Sony with Mosaic producing. Gould’s podcast The Dana Gould Hour premieres today on iTunes and Podcaster. The project was packaged by UTA, which reps Gould and Gerber.

Their names look so alike from a distance, that I thought it was "starring comedian Dave Grohl"

Sounds cool. FX rarely disappoints.

However FX seems to axe shows pretty quick if they don't grav ratings, ie. The Riches and that comedy about eating disorders, which were both funny.

This sounds like it will be awesome! One of my favorite shows It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is on FX. Can't wait...

It sounds a little bit like the idea came from this....
I'll definately watch it, even if it kinda sucks.
I love horrible tv.

Would it be just a one-off episode or a whole series?

Executive producer would be for the whole series. Or at least unless and until Dave decided to leave the series.

Someone told me today that they heard, something about Dave doing a TV series, on local radio KROQ last week (?)

is this what they were referring to?

Can anyone, please, confirm!

If it's that Sarah Silverman type thing...I'M IN!

Dana Gould was on the Adam Carolla show the other day. Nothing new to report, other than that the show's working title is "Dischord", and he was introduced to Dave through Will Ferrell.
