Yesterday - in many ways - the worst nightmare of Nirvana fans was announced. CBS - home of your grandmothers favorite sitcoms (Two and a Half Men etc) has bought the rights to a new show called (get ready): "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
This is the sort of thing that would make Kurt Cobain's ashes congeal into a gelatinous blob - walk out into the sun to harden - then throw themselves off of a 57 story building just so he could shatter and kill himself again. Ugh
The Hollywood Reporter says the shows premise is about a kid that "forgoes Harvard and instead opts to launch a multi billion-dollar Internet company from his garage with the assistance of his sister, best friend and his 1990s indie-rock parents".
The writer/creator of the show is Dave Goetsch - who has worked on the Big Band Theory, 3rd Rock From The Sun and Grounded For Life. We haven't heard if Courtney Love has given permission for the network to use the name "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - however, if it means a check is coming her way - she would probably cover "Teen Spirit" with The Rembrandts for the opening credits.
