Zooey Deschanel To Play Famous Groupie
The show, currently in development, will feature work by writer Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under) and co-producer Tim Gibbons (Curb Your Enthusiasm), as well as Des Barres and her ex-husband Michael, according to LA Weekly.
The series is being called a "dramedy" that will feature Des Barres' view of rock and roll's glory years, a time in which she was linked to Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison and Jimmy Page, among other rock stars. As for the question of who will portray these rock stars, Des Barres says most of the legendary musicians will be cameos and more significant characters might be composites of various rockers. She says she's open to the idea of current musicians taking on roles of '70s stars. "I've always seen Rhett Miller (of alt-country group the Old 97s) as Graham Parsons," she said.
