FX Network popep up a giant smashed guitar on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the legendary Chinese Theatre yesterday, June 29, here in Los Angeles, to celebrate the beginning of the second season of Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, the comedy created by and starring Denis Leary, airs every Thursday at 10:00PM ET/PT. The 10-episode second season also stars John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales.
It centers on washed up early 90s rock star Johnny Rock and his band that was on the brink of becoming famous until they broke up the same day the album dropped. Many years later, talented young singer – and Johnny’s daughter – Gigi shows up with a desire to be famous, an appreciation for the band’s only album, and a stack of cash big enough to bring the whole band back into the studio. Just as Gigi and The Assassins start to gain traction, their dysfunctional rock-n-roll family begins to implode. After the sudden passing of an old friend and former bandmate, the band is forced to take a hard look at their lives and careers. Ava, in particular, struggles with a midlife crisis as she questions her backup role. With advice from Gigi and support from Flash, she’s ready to take a step into the spotlight. Johnny does everything he can to get back into the spotlight, while realizing that he may lose Ava should she find success with her new project. Meanwhile, Gigi comes to a realization of her own – that she should experience everything and anything while she’s still young. Flash plays support for both Ava and Gigi while he contemplates taking his relationship with Gigi to the next level. Rehab is approached by a respected Irish actor who wants to take advantage of the recent success of “Hamilton” by buying the rights to Rehab’s song cycle about the Irish Potato Famine and turning it into an elaborate off-Broadway Hip-Hop production. When Bam Bam gets involved and heavily attached, he and Rehab begin to clash over creative control. All of this comes to a head as a secret from the band’s past comes back to bite them in the ass.
Leary serves as a writer, composer and Executive Producer along with Jim Serpico.
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is produced by FX Productions and Fox 21 Television Studios.
