Cameron Crowe’s Showtime ‘Roadies’ Gets First Trailer, June Premiere
Cameron Crowe’s Showtime music drama Roadies has been a long … well, road coming, between recasting and other retools, and now finally has a date for its first big show. The Almost Famous followup of sorts will officially premiere in June, also smoothly jamming out its first official trailer.
Per Showtime’s official word, the first episode of Cameron Crowe’s Roadies will bow on June 26, having been picked up to series way back in October of 2015 after a lengthy development process.
Showtime’s Roadies follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes — the crew members who get the show on the road. Carla Gugino plays the band’s production manager Shelli (having replaced Christina Hendricks), a world-class multi-tasker, music fan, and partner to the band’s tour manager (Luke Wilson), with whom she clashes personally and professionally.
Also starring in the series are Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Peter Cambor, Machine Gun Kelly, and Game of Thrones Season 5 star Keisha Castle-Hughes. Oscar-winner Crowe both wrote and directed the pilot, with My So Called Life alum Winnie Holzman serving as showrunner.
We’ll see what Roadies has to offer in June, but in the meantime, check out the first trailer above.
