Showtime has firmed up its Roadies cast.
The one-hour comedy pilot following the behind-the-scenes action of a rock band’s crew has officially announced Luke Wilson (Old School) and Imogen Poots (The Look of Love) as the show’s stars. Both names leaked late last week, and now we can announce that they’ll be joined by Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) and actor Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles).
Wilson will play a “road-weary, sleep-deprived tour manager,” Poots is “a first-rate electrical tech with a great heart,” Castle-Hughes “the band’s outspoken and passionate sound mixer” and Cambor is “an offbeat American anglophile guitar tech.”
Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous) wrote the pilot and will also direct and executive produce it. Writer Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life) is the showrunner and these two guys who may have previously heard of — J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk — are executive producers.
