FX Orders Denis Leary Comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll to Series — Check Out the First Photos

Denis Leary Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll FXFX is confident it can make lightning strike twice with Denis Leary.

The cabler has placed a 10-episode order for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, a half-hour comedy series starring the Rescue Me vet as an aging rock star hungry for fame and fortune.

Here’s the show’s (lengthy) premise: “Johnny Rock (Leary) is a middle-aged rock ‘n roller who desperately wanted to be rich and famous. So far, he’s 0 for 2. As the magnificently talented lead singer of New York’s legendary early 90’s band The Heathens, Johnny was on his way to the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. His best friend Flash (John Corbett) was being called the next number one lead guitar player on planet earth. The critics loved them. Their live shows were selling out. But Johnny had a problem with booze. And coke. And weed. And pills. And cough medicine. And oh yeah — he slept with Flash’s wife. And his bass player’s fiancé. The band broke up the same day their first and only record was released. Twenty-five years later Johnny is trying to get the band back together.Why?  Because as his soon-to-be-ex manager Ira Feinbaum tells him: ‘Johnny, you’re 50, broke and completely anonymous. In rock ‘n roll you know what that makes you? A bartender.’ 25 years later the sex might be harder to find, the drugs might be Luvox and Crestor and Cialis — but rock ‘n roll will never die. It just has a bigger prostate.”

The cast also includes Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix and Bobby Kelly.
