Funnyman Denis Leary is returning to TV as a fallen rock star.

The Ice Age regular's new series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll has been picked up by executives at FX, who aired his acclaimed firefighter drama Rescue Me.

In the series, Leary will play character Johnny Rock, who is attempting to reform the band that fired him in the early 1990s after he slept with their partners.

John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix and Bobby Kelly will co-star, and Leary reveals his Rescue Me colleague Peter Tolan is playing his gay stepfather, stating, "I know what you're thinking: 'Isn't Peter just a few years older than Denis?' In fact, we are the same exact age. I'm just prettier."

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll will premiere on FX in 2015.
