"Roadies" (TV show) is a music-infused, one-hour ensemble comedy on Showtime created by Oscar winner Cameron Crowe who also writes, directs and executive produces. The series is a backstage look into the lives of a tight-knit group of rock band "roadies."

The series is 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 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 the successful arena-level group, The Staton-House Band.

Luke Wilson ("The Royal Tenenbaums," "Old School," "Enlightened") stars as the band's tour manager opposite Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Carla Gugino ("San Andreas," "The Brink," "The Space Between Us") as the production manager. Their unique personal and professional relationship is forever crashing and colliding as they guide the daily events of the band and crew of roadies. Imogen Poots ("The Look of Love"), Rafe Spall ("One Day"), Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes ("Whale Rider"), Peter Cambor ("NCIS: Los Angeles"), Colson Baker a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly ("Beyond the Lights") and Ron White ("Blue Collar Comedy Tour") star in the ensemble cast. Luis Guzman ("Boogie Nights"), Jacqueline Byers ("The Strain"), Finesse Mitchell ("Saturday Night Live"), Branscombe Richmond ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and Tanc Sade ("Matador," "Gilmore Girls") guest star.

"Roadies" is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Vinyl Films and Dooley & Company Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television. Cameron Crowe, Emmy and Tony nominee Winnie Holzman ("My So-Called Life," "Wicked"), and Emmy winners J.J. Abrams ("Lost," "Fringe," "Person of Interest") and Bryan Burk ("Lost," "Fringe," "Person of Interest") serve as executive producers. Kathy Lingg ("Person of Interest," "Fringe") is co-executive producer. Kelly Curtis, Pearl Jam's manager and a regular collaborator with Crowe, is also on board as producer and music supervisor.
