Denis Leary returns to television with a starring role and as executive producer of Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, a new music-driven comedy on FX. Leary also created the series which is set to premiere on July 16, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, and the network’s just unveiled the title sequence video setting up the vibe of the show. In addition to Leary, the cast includes Elizabeth Gillies, John Ales, Bobby Kelly and Elaine Hendrix.
The Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Plot:
Leary stars as “Johnny Rock,” lead singer of a legendary early 90s New York band called The Heathens. Known for living up to their name, the band partied so long and so hard that even Keith Richards thought they needed to slow things down. The Heathens were on the brink of becoming famous for their kickass live shows and the release of their highly anticipated first album. Until they broke up. The same day the album dropped. Because lead guitarist Flash (John Corbett) found Johnny in bed with his wife. So the band became legendary for all the wrong reasons – like self-destructing sooner than any group in rock ‘n’ roll history. 25 years later the only thing bigger than Johnny’s ego is his prostate. The drugs he really needs now aren’t cocaine and marijuana – they’re Crestor, Cymbalta and Cialis. He’s out of work, out of money and out of show business options. That’s when a massively talented young singer named Gigi (Gillies) shows up – with a burning desire to be famous, a throwback appreciation for The Heathens only album, and a stack of cash big enough to bring the whole band back into the studio. Only this time, SHE’S the lead singer and Johnny’s just a behind the scenes songwriter.
