Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (SDRR)
Season 1 Episode 5: “Doctor Doctor”
Created by Denis Leary
Directed by Denis Leary
Written by Denis Leary
Starring Denis Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, John Ales, Robert Kelly, Elaine Hendrix, Josh Pais
FX
Air Date: Thursday, August 13th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, the gang found out that The Heathens were still big in Belgium, as a result of faking Johnny Rock’s (Denis Leary) death. This stirs up mixed feelings for a few of them:

Johnny: Torn between wanting success for himself and Gigi (Liz Gillies).

Gigi: Torn between Flash (John Corbett) pushing to kick Johnny out when he inevitable f***s up, and being there for her dad.

Flash: Torn between never wanting to play with Johnny again and loads of cash (ok – that dilemma does not last long).

The rest? The dilemma is choosing their riders.

Johnny totally chokes after sounding amazing, but Gigi steps in and steps up. As we all knew she would, she does not throw her dad out. Their burgeoning relationship is the heart of the show.

Season 1 Episode 4: “What You Like Is In The Limo”

Starring Denis Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, John Ales, Robert Kelly, Elaine Hendrix, Josh Pais
FX
Air Date: Thursday, August 6th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, those crazy kids decided to create a Johnny Rock (Denis Leary) death hoax, in order to get buzz about the new band, with Gigi (Liz Gillies) as the frontwoman. There’s a lot of fun imagining the death method.

Ira (Josh Pais): “What if somebody shot you?”

Gigi’s debut is a success! There’s a cool father-daughter musical moment that definitely pulls at the heartstrings. Joan Jett has a cameo, and she looks lovely and badass at the same time, as usual.

Created by Denis Leary

Starring Denis Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, John Ales, Robert Kelly, Elaine Hendrix, Josh Pais
FOX
Air Date: Thursday, July 30th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, the band plus Gigi (Liz Gillies) tried to get Johnny (Denis Leary) clean and sober, so he could be more productive in the songwriting department. This is after he wrote a killer riff during a bender, that he didn’t remember writing. Gigi is worried about his health though. He signed a contract without reading it, and a few of the stipulations were – Gigi is the singer, Johnny is the songwriter, and he’s gotta write 5 songs sober in 30 days. Johnny went to each and every member of the cast to try to wiggle his way out of it, until finally Rehab (John Ales) relented on some Adderral. Johnny had the last laugh though. He wrote the worst song ever, and they all ran to grab liquor and weed – but that’s it. Johnny Rock is a master manipulator.

Last week on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (SDRR) we met Johnny Rock (Denis Leary), an aging rocker in a downward spiral, considering a gig as a frontman for a Bon Jovi cover band. Until his talented daughter Gigi (Liz Gillies) walks into his life (after he creepily hits on her). She’s got money, she wants to be a star, and she wants her daddy’s old band, The Heathens, to get back together. But first, Dad has to apologize to his old guitarist Flash (John Corbett) for the last few decades. Robert Kelly as drummer Bam Bam, John Ales as bassist Rehab, and Elaine Hendrix as Ava, backup singer and Johnny’s girlfriend finish the lineup.

SDRR Meet Johnny Rock

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll premiered Thursday, July 16th on FX, and I loved it. Short and sweet, vulgar and kind, so wrong yet the music makes it so right, if they keep this up – this will be a guaranteed hit. And those that have been with me through pilot shows know that the expectation is lower, without connections or background or a crazy shock factor. But this pilot was a blast.

Do you wanna give it a shot? Watch the Meet the Characters videos below and decide for yourself.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll premiered last Thursday night, and it really was just 25 minutes of fun. Based on washed up, druggie, has-been, Johnny Rock (Denis Leary) of fictional 90s band, The Heathens, and his long lost daughter Gigi (Liz Gillies), the pilot gives us how she got the band back together – only not the same together it was before.

Be sure to check out the official music video for the Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll theme song below.

SDRR Heathens Young Header

SDRR and FX has released 4 “rockumentaries” for fictional band, The Heathens. The videos provide a bit of history for this has-been band, fronted by Johnny Rock (Denis Leary), axe man Flash (John Corbett), bassist Rehab (John Ales), and Bam-Bam (Robert Kelly) who pounds away on the kit. Johnny Rock’s long lost daughter is Gigi (Liz Gillies), whose vocals will propel the band into the 21st Century (they hope). We hope so too. We want Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll to stick around after this promising publicity.

Watch all 4 “Rockumentaries” below.
