Fox has given a put-pilot commitment for DeTour, a project based on the life of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Cuomo’s real-life “detour”—when he returned to study at Harvard University in the midst of his musical career—the single-camera comedy will focus on a middle-aged rock star who leaves success on stage in order to rediscover himself.

Steve Franks, the creator of USA Network’s Psych, will write the pilot and executive produce along with Cuomo.
