Showtime to Premiere ‘Roadies’ June 26
Roadies, a one-hour ensemble comedy from Cameron Crowe, will debut on Showtime June 26 at 10 p.m. (ET), the network said.
The series, with Luke Wilson and Carla Gugino in the cast, offers “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,” according to Showtime.
Showtime will start production on 10 episodes in March. Crowe’s many films include the rock ‘n roll road picture Almost Famous.
