DeTour is an unaired television series developed in 2014 for the Fox network. It was loosely based on the life of Rivers Cuomo.

In August of 2014, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Psych creator Steve Franks had pitched a coming-of-age story about "a 30-something rock star who, unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming a massive success." Cuomo confirmed in 2015 that a full pilot episode had been filmed, featuring cameos from him and social media personality Logan Paul. Cuomo played a character named "Professor Kitts," a reference to the surname he and his brother Leaves Cuomo used in childhood.

The pilot of DeTour leaked online on June 25, 2023. The Weezer songs "Island in the Sun" and "Hash Pipe" are used in the pilot. The character inspired by Cuomo also sings the song "California Kids."
