Smells Like Teen Sitcom

More than twenty years after Nirvana broke through into the mainstream mostly on the strength of the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit", the band and especially the infamous track that singlehandedly killed hair metal overnight and saw flannel shirts disappear off every warehouse's floor, will see a makeover... in the form of a new family sitcom. CBS has bought the rights to a program called "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which was created by "Big Bang Theory" writer Dave Goetsch.

The program will tell the story of a teenager who "forgoes Harvard and instead opts to launch a multibillion-dollar Internet company from his garage with the assistance of his sister, best friend and his 1990s indie-rock parents". The title is clearly meant to wrap up the protagonist's ambitions and his parents' past.

If the American legal system has taught us anything, it is that you gotta clear all obstacles first, in this case Courtney Love who will sue if she hadn't signed off on the show idea.

I wonder what Kurt thinks of this.
