Dave Grohl  has landed a deal with HBO to produce and host his own TV series. According to  Classic Rock  magazine , the series will focus on cool recording studios around the country and the folks who run and record in them.

The idea was reportedly inspired by Grohl's  Sound City  documentary, which profiled the legendary Sound City Studios, where Grohl and  Nirvana  recorded the band's iconic 1991 album  Nevermind,  and which included interviews from artists who have recorded at the famous studio during their careers. 

Featured in Grohl's new series will be Inner Ear Studios in Washington, D.C., which has hosted  Henry Rollins ,  Fugazi  and even Dave Grohl's pre-Nirvana band  Scream ; Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, which is owned by Nirvana producer  Steve Albini  and also was a recording site of  Robert Plant  and  Jimmy Page ; Ranch de la Luna Studios in Joshua Tree, California, which is rumored to be the latest recording site of  Foo Fighters ; and many others. 

Grohl has also chatted with a bunch of artists for the series including -- so far --  Nancy Wilson  of  Heart ,  KISS '  Paul Stanley  and the  Eagles '  Joe Walsh  -- who just confirmed to  The Hollywood Reporter  that he's a guest on the now-underway Foo album.

The series doesn't yet have a name but is expected to land on HBO's winter schedule.
