Denis Leary Gets FX Series Order For Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll

1 July 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Denis Leary’s upcoming comedy show, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, has been ordered to series by FX, with 10 episodes now in the pipeline. Written by Leary and directed by Michael Blieden (Children’s Hospital), the show follows Johnny Rock (Leary) – an aging rocker, desperately chasing one last shot at fame and fortune.

The show sets up his character as someone who, back in the early 1990s, led a band called The Heathens to the height of the New York rock scene. He was headed for greatness, along with best friend and lead guitarist Flash (John Corbett), until he precipitated their downfall with his predilection for drugs, alcohol and the wives of his friends. We learn that the band released one record and broke up on the same day. Two decades later, Johnny has reunion on his mind.

Starring Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious), Elaine Hendrix (See Dad Run) and Bobby Kelly (Louie »

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (don't blame us, that's how it's written) is a new Denis Leary sitcom coming to FX in 2015...

News

With Louie, Archer, Wilfred and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia on its books, FX has some of the best modern TV comedy around. Hoping to join that list of quality comedy is a new Denis Leary vehicle with an Ian Dury-inspired title: Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.

Three years after his previous FX project - firefighter comedy drama Rescue Me - ended on the channel, Leary is returning to FX with his new creation, which tells the story of a middle-aged recovering alcoholic and drug addict rock star attempting to reunite his band twenty-five years after they put out their one and only album.

FX Orders Denis Leary Series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll

30 June 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Fans of Rescue Me, and/or Denis Leary, have something to be happy about as FX orders a new series, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, from the comedian.

This one is quite a different effort from the surprisingly dramatic Rescue Me, but looks as though it is going to mix a lot of elements. Leary is likely just the guy who can deliver an aging, washed out musician who barely had a career in the first place, and is now trying to make something happen for himself. That’s especially true if this is angling for a comedy that can also deliver some weightier moments, which looks to be the case.

Catch all the info below, and let me know what you think. Will you be tuning in?

In addition to Leary, the cast also includes John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, and Bobby Kelly.  Check out the first images after the jump, along with the full press release.

Animal Review

25 June 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As far as creature features go, Animal is about as generically crafted as they come, but that might be serviceable enough for some of you (no judgement!). A group of hikers venture into a heavily wooded area and get caught stumbling around after sundown, some type of murderous creature pursues on foot, and a playful excursion turns into a fight for survival. People die, blood is spilled, and a monster roams free – but Chiller’s animalistic horror movie doesn’t do a darn thing to differentiate itself. Instead of finding myself cringing in fear at the very sight of these monsters, my first thought was “Oh look, they copied the Feast monsters!” I’ll admit, Animal is quick and relatively painless, but with a presence so duplicative, is all the running, screaming, and dying actually worthwhile?

18 April 2014 1:37 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Animal, another one of the ‘cabin-in-the-woods’ style horror movies, albeit this time with a great, big creature rather than and form of living or evil dead after a group of horny teenagers, is coming to screens in the Us in June, and today the trailer for the film debuted over at Entertainment Weekly.

The film is actually produced by Drew Barrymore’s production company Flower Films, and directed by Brett Simmons.

Keke Palmer, Amaury Nolasco, Parker Young, Joey Lauren Adams, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye, and Jeremy Sumpter star.

Not sure what to make of this one, but I personally dig this kind of horror flick, and that monster (see below) sure looks dangerous, and hungry for some meat.

Check out the trailer and poster for this film below. This one opens in the Us in cinemas and on VOD on June 17th, 2014. There is no UK release date set as yet. »

Teaser Trailer for Drew Barrymore's Horror Film Animal

28 March 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This is the first teaser trailer to the Drew Barrymore produced horror thriller Animal. It basically looks like every other horror film that takes place in the woods. The trailer features a group of friends running through the forest being chased by an unseen creature. No offense, but something like this can be shot by an amateur filmmaker. The trailer gives me nothing to spark my interest or excitement. It's a something we've seen a thousand times before. 

The story follows "a group of close-knit friends who find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a blood-thirsty predator. Holed up in [an] isolated cabin, tensions mount as secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group puts their differences aside and fights for survival."

Like I said, it's like every other conventional horror movie that takes place in the woods. The movie was directed by Brett Simmons and it stars Keke Palmer, »
