Z Rock premiered on IFC on August 24, 2008. This series follows three friends leading a double life: by night they're a hard-partying rock band and by day they're a kids party band. Z Rock is (kinda) based on the true story of the band Z02 (brothers Paulie Z and David Z, and lifelong friend Joey Cassata) and gives a satirical look at the dark underbelly of the rock n' roll dream. Paulie (vocals), David (bass guitar), and Joey (drums) are average, Brooklyn-born and bred neighborhood guys doing what it takes to avoid menial jobs to pay the rent. By day, they re-invent themselves as Z Brothers: THE band to book in New York City - if you want your trust-fund five-year-old to be the envy of every blue blood in school.
