A show about a 30-something rock star from the creator of Psych got a pilot order

Say it is so: Fox Broadcasting Co. has ordered a pilot of a sitcom based on the life Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.

DeToured will follow a fictional musician who decides to give up his rock-star lifestyle for normalcy, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Cuomo made a similar move several years ago when he took time off to study full-time at Harvard, where he chose to live in student housing and try out for extracurricular activities like a regular college kid.

Psych creator Steve Franks will write and executive-produce the project. Cuomo and his band, meanwhile, will release their next studio album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End, on Oct. 7.
