While panels/presentations for FX shows like Archer, The Strain and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will garner plenty of attention, the network’s ‘FXhibition – An Innovative Activation & Art Installation might be the biggest draw.
Would you believe an immersive American Horror Story VR experience? To avoid lineups, fans can reserve a spot at AHSReservations.com, beginning July 19th.
There will also be unique art installations for Archer, American Horror Story, The Strain, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll – and fans can settle in for a cool one in It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Paddy’s Pub.
In FX’s rock&roll dramedy, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (Thursday, 10/9C), Ava (Elaine Hendrix) has been with Johnny Rock (Denis Leary) for decades – even though his insecurities and constantly fried state keep him from ever becoming successful. For one brief moment in the early nineties, his band The Heathens was the hottest ticket in New York – but he (and they) disintegrated on stage the night their one and only album dropped. Through all of the all-too-brief ups and all-too-many downs, she has been there for/with him.
In the ‘90s there was a rock band called The Heathens. Led by Johnny Rock, they were legendary but the day their first album dropped, they broke up. Now, twenty-five years later, they have a chance to get it together and take another shot at the big time, but with one big difference – Rock is relegated to songwriting and the band is being led by the daughter he never knew he had.
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll (FX, Thursdays, 10/9C) is a full throttle exploration of the rock & roll lifestyle – then and now. It’s also funny and hell and surprisingly poignant. It has the potential to be the best thing Denis Leary has ever done – and I’m including The Ref and Rescue Me in that assessment.
FX’s Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll looks like it’s going to be another raunchy, quality series starring Denis Leary – but it comes with it’s own music video – Die Tryin’ – which could even be a hit. (Let’s talk authenticity, people! )
Check out Die Tryin’ and four more tasty clips for Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, premiering on Tuesday, July 16th on FX.
