Denis Leary has another win at FX!
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll scored a second season pickup. The 30-minute comedy, created by and starring Leary, follows Johnny Rock, the lead singer of legendary early 90s band The Heathens.
Once famous for kickass live music and a highly anticipated album, they became legends when they broke the day their album dropped because Johnny was caught in bed with their guitarist's (John Corbett) wife and the band broke up.
"We are thrilled with Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll and it proved to one of the highest-rated new comedies on cable this year," Eric Schrier, one of the Presidents of Original Programming, FX Network and FX Productions, said.
"We thank Denis and the rest of the cast, along with Jim Serpico and Tom Sellitti, for a terrific first season and look forward to indulging in more Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll in season two."
Added Leary, "The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season Two. In which case, my head would explode. Hopefully on-camera so we get a kickass viral video out of it. Not to mention awesome Live+3s.
I look forward to once again creating new episodes of television with John Landgraf's exceptional FX team. And scoring some cool Bastard Executioner swag."
