INTRO: New comedy series features rockers by night who play for kiddies by day. A group of musicians who rock out at night and goof around for kiddies by day is the premise for a new comedy show. The series is based on the lives of the stars of the show.
Story: Hard rockers by night who play for rich kids by day - it's an unlikely scenario that gave three struggling musicians a chance at stardom in a new series based on their lives called "Z Rock". The show is a 10-episode semi-scripted, comedy series that follows a group of musicians who live by the credo of rock n' roll by night and balloons, birthday cake and party hats by day. The show is loosely based on the real lives of its three New York based stars, brothers Paulie Z and David Z, and lifelong friend Joey Cassata and their actual band, Z02.
"It's a very highly detailed script we get, but none of the lines are scripted out for us," said Cassata who along with his bandmates had never acted before. "Most of it is very ad-libbed and on the spot but we get our scene, we get our beats to hit and then we just kind of play it by ear as we go but the other actors on set are all amazing comedians and actors so we really feed off them so it's been really easy for us."【shows 2】"
The show features celebrity cameos in each episode including Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row and comedian Gilbert Gottfried. The series was created for the musicians, who once opened for KISS, after they were discovered by the talent agent father of one of the children they played for at a birthday party. Despite their lack of on-camera experience , he decided to give them a chance.
"Because they created environments that were very similar to our real life, it became comfortable because it was like 'oh yeah, this has really happened to us'," said Paulie Z. The band continues to play and record music and is planning a tour for the fall. "Z Rock" premieres on IFC in North America on August 24. 【shows 6】
