Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has signed on to executive produce a new half-hour comedy for FX starring comedian Dana Gould. The show, to be written by Gould, will be about a rock band on the verge of stardom which must go into therapy in order to keep themselves from breaking up. Unfortunately for the band, they end up with a misanthropic couples therapist on the brink of divorce.

Gould approached Grohl to get involved with the project, largely based on the rocker's reputation as a very funny dude. It's unclear whether Grohl will appear in the as-yet untitled show, or provide music for its soundtrack.

This isn't the comedian's first time working on a sitcom. He previously starred in Nolan Knows Best, a 2010 pilot developed for ABC. Gould is also writing a movie, Moon People, for Sony, and he hosts a popular podcast called The Dana Gould Hour.
