IFC Channel debuted it’s new original comedy series, Z Rock. The show is basically about a rock band that leads a double life. By night, they are a Brooklyn-based rock band ZO2. By day they are trying to make ends meet by performing as a kid party band, The Z Brothers.
The trio is two brothers and their lifelong friend as they take a satirical look at the underbelly of rock, hauling gear, dealing with overly aggressive club owners, and a manager that likes to attend temple for the connections, (she got them an opening spot for Kiss by eating Gefilte fish with Paul Stanley’s mother). Similar shows have existed, the two we think of most are Flight Of The Conchords, and Tenacious D. However, unlike those shows, Z Rock has a harder more rock edge to it unlike FOC’s gullibility and The D’s brazen fanboyism. The likes of Joan Rivers, Dave Navarro, Gilbert Gottfried, Greg Giraldo, and Sebastian Bach all make appearances working to round out the mix of celebrity and comedy. Catch the trailer after the jump. And if you live in the NYC area, you can easily recognize the clubs and scenes since the show is shot on location, including radio station WFUV, and Southpaw night club.
