Fox Atomic has set a June start date for "The Rocker," a comedy that will star Rainn Wilson (TV's "The Office") as a failed drummer who gets a second shot at fame reports Variety.

Scripted by Ryan Jaffe, and re-written by Wally Wolodarsky and Maya Forbes, the comedy casts Wilson as a modern day Pete Best, the man who dropped out of the Beatles before the band became globally famous.

Peter Cattaneo ("The Full Monty") will direct and Shawn Levy will produce.
