Blogging A to Z: Z Rock

Well, A to Z Challenge. I hear your "Z" and give you the virtually  unknown now-cancelled cable series Z Rock. It aired in 2008-2009 on IFC, Independent Film Channel, which probably not all cable subscribers even have. I have not seen this show but I was determined to find a real Z show and not just something with a "Z" in it like.. I don't know, Oz.

The show is about two brothers in a hard rock band who pay the bills by playing kid parties by day. A ton of real world rockers guest as themselves: Dave Navarro, Dee Snider, Sebastian Bach.

It sounds pretty funny, and the actors are actually in a band. It's referred to as "semi-scripted" so it's a mix of improv, reality, scripted. I know most movie channels now are trying their hand at original scripted shows, so it's too bad this got lost in the shuffle on an obscure network.

Have any of you watched Z Rock?

That wraps up the A to Z Challenge. I'ts been fun and I've enjoyed finding so many new blogs during the blog tour. If you're a new follower, thank you! I tend to post a lot of book reviews, but since I picked up my TV writing gig at, I also dabble in pop culture and TV musings. I hope you stick around and thanks for reading.


  1. Nope, I've never watched this show. I've never even heard of it. It sounds like something my significant other would get a kick out of.

    Congratulations on having finished the challenge!

  2. I've never heard of this one. Congratulations on completing the A to Z!

  3. I've never even heard of this one, but kudos for tracking down a Z show. I can't even think of one. Oh wait, a kids' show called ZABOOMAFOO. Quite entertaining and has cute animals on it. :)

  4. I just realized I could have fudged the system and used Invader Zim even though the "Z" is the second word. At least I've watched that show!
