Showtime's 'Roadies' available to stream online before premiere
Great news for Cameron Crowe fans.
Showtime posted the first episode of Crowe’s new series Roadies to YouTube. The show follows a group of people working on a music tour and the relationships that form amongst this nomadic team. Crowe created the show, which boasts an all-star cast including, Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, Imogen Poots, and Rafe Spall.
“I hadn’t seen their stories told,” Crowe told EW about the roadies of the series’ title. “I always used to see these pictures — or when we’d film something — where Elton John would come down the hallway of the Forum on his way to the stage, and some poor [stagehand] would be moving a cart, and he’d see the camera and Elton coming and he’d be like [mimics someone trying to get out of frame]. The camera would just move past him, and I was like, No — let’s do the show where the camera’s on this guy that’s against the wall. Let Elton John go. We want to know his world. That’s kind of the show.”
Viewers can check out the premiere below. The show debuts June 26 at 10 pm ET on Showtime.
