Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is an American comedy television series created by and starring Denis Leary. The series aired on FX for a total of 20 episodes from July 16, 2015, through September 1, 2016.
50-year-old Johnny Rock (Denis Leary of RESCUE ME fame) was once the lead singer of The Heathens, a rising rock band from the late 80s and early 90s that broke up following the release of only one album, mainly due to his life of excess. 25 years later, Rock struggles to survive in the music industry. He is given a second chance, however, when he’s surprised to find out that he has a 21-year-old daughter named Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) with one of his former back up singers. Gigi moves to New York to try to make it as a musician. She comes up with a proposition: if her dad reforms the Heathens, she’ll replace him as lead singer, the band will change their name to The Assassins, and in return he’ll stay on board as lead songwriter for the band, as well as coach to Gigi. Johnny experiences the challenges of an aging rock star in a music landscape fueled by hip-hop and pop, as well as caring for someone other than himself for once with his newly found daughter now in his life.
