Trivia

The producers were looking for a girl who could sing live, do comedy, drama, and improv. Jim Serpico's teenage sons suggested Elizabeth Gillies as they were fans of the Nickelodeon musical series Victorious. Jim didn't think a Nickelodeon actress could fit into an FX series but Denis heard her sing immediately put the preconceived notions of Nickelodeon behind them. See more »

The show that brings real music back
19 July 2015 | by (London) – See all my reviews

After watching the first episodes of Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll I can say that this show has stolen my heart. The series is a comedy mixed with drama and music that at first looks like to be about an old rock band trying to get together but basically is most about the relations between the band members.

The casting is very well done, the chemistry is between the actors is great. Elizabeth Gillies who plays Gigi, makes the most impression in both acting and singing. She is a true talent and a great find by producer and actor Denis Leary.

The music part of the series is what makes it stand out from all other shows about bands and fame. All music was recorded live and this you see back in the episodes: it makes it look like you're watching a live concert. The live music makes it so much more believable and brings us back to a time where we had real music instead of auto tune. Gillies voice is phenomenal and shows that real music still is possible.
