Directed by Cameron Crowe, the show also features J.J. Abrams and Winnie Holtzman on executive producer duties, and stars Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots.

“Roadies gives 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.

“The music-infused ensemble comedy series chronicles the rock world through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes and puts the spotlight on the backstage workers who put the show on the road while touring the United States for a successful arena-level band.”

The opening line of the trailer – from Tom Petty – gives a taste, saying “I think the general public has no idea what roadies do. Bless ’em all, I just play the songs, they make the show happen.”

The ten-episode series will run through the early summer, and follows on from Crowe’s box office movies Vanilla SkyJerry MaguireAlmost Famous and We Bought A Zoo.
