Last week we showed off the first trailer for the upcoming Showtime series from Cameron Crowe. The show, which focuses on the lives of a family of roadies, stars a great cast including: Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, Imogen Poots,Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, Colson Baker, and Ron White.
I’ve not had a chance to check out the show yet, but given Crowe’s history (Singles, Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, Say Anything…), it at least deserves a chance.
Created by Oscar winner Cameron Crowe, ROADIES is an insider’s look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of “roadies” who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way. The music-infused ensemble comedy series chronicles the rock world through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes and puts the spotlight on the backstage workers who put the show on the road while touring the United States for a successful arena-level band.
