Denis Leary Returns to FX With New Comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll
Not keen on letting ABC have a monopoly on terribly annoying punctuation in show titles, FX has ordered 10 episodes of Denis Leary's new comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. Created by and starring Leary, the series follows a washed up former rock star who desperately wants to be rich and famous, but partied a bit too hard, drank a bit too much, and slept with one too many of the wrong gals during the band's heyday. In a new bid for attention, he's attempting to get the band back together 25 years after he single-handedly flushed it down the toilet like it was cocaine during a raid.
Leary, who also co-created and starred in FX's long-running drama Rescue Me, plays Johnny Rock, the washed up former frontman of the popular '90s band The Heathens. John Corbett plays Flash, the band's guitarist and Johnny's former BFF. The series also stars Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, and Bobby Kelly. Look for it to debut on FX in 2015.
Leary is also the co-creator of USA's raunchy comedy, Sirens, which was recently renewed for Season 2.
