Any fans of Cameron Crowe’s repertoire will be happy to hear that his new one hour comedy, Roadies, has been picked up by Showtime.
Showtime has picked up a one-hour pilot for Roadies, a new comedy written and directed by Cameron Crowe that will follow the day-to-day life of the road crew for a successful touring rock band. The network describes the show as an examination of the “reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives” of the people who work diligently behind the scenes.
The show has an excellent team working on it, with executive producer Crowe, joined by J.J. Abrams and My So Called Life creator, Winnie Holzman. Crowe issued the following statement:
“I love that we’re finally doing Roadies,” Crowe said in a statement. “J.J. and I have been talking about it for some time. We’re fans of crews, those workers up on the rigging towers or walking feverishly with eight phones on their belt. Those quietly devoted people live huge lives; they’re often the real keepers of the flame. So happy to also be telling these stories with Showtime, and also with one of my very favorite writer-producers ever, Winnie Holzman. Let’s get this show on the road!”
I didn’t see We Bought a Zoo, which was Crowe’s last project, but am a big fan of some of his previous ones, which include, Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire, Singles, and lest we not forget the iconic, Say Anything…
