Life after Mad Men for Christna Hendricks could include a turn in a would-be Showtime comedy about life with the band.
Hendricks, who plays office manager turned partner Joan Harris in AMC's retro ad series that wraps its final season this spring, will play Shelli, the band's production manager in Showtime's pilot Roadies,which follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of its crew.
Five-time Emmy nominee Hendricks joins the project -- the one-hour pilot will shoot in Vancouver early next year -- as the tough, hardworking manager, who is married to the gig, but is privately very emotional.
Luke Wilson (Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums), Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) were previously announced as stars of the ensemble cast.
Roadies is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Vinyl Films and Dooley & Company Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.
