FX Orders Denis Leary Project EW

FX has ordered a project from Denis Leary, which could bring the actor back to the network where he starred in "Rescue Me" for seven seasons. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that the cable channel ordered a pilot for “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll."

The project is about a middle-aged rock star named Johnny Rock, played by Leary, who never found the fame and riches he was looking for because of his problems with drugs and alcohol. The show picks up as he tries to get his band back together.

The description for the show says, “25 years later, the sex might be harder to find, the drugs might be Luvox and Crestor and Cialis -- but rock ‘n roll will never die. It just has a bigger prostate.”

The pilot will shoot in the spring and is from FX Productions and Fox Television Studios.
