Christina Hendricks has joined the cast of Showtime’s Roadies from writer/director/executive producer Cameron Crowe. The comedy pilot is set to shoot in early 2015 with Luke Wilson, Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Peter Cambor, and Keisha Castle-Hughes already announced to star.

Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life) will executive produce and serve as showrunner. J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk are also on board as executive producers.

The Plot:

Roadies follows a hot-ticket tour, but with a simple twist: the band is in the background and the roadies take the spotlight. It’s an inside look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of characters who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way.

Christina Hendricks will portray “Shelli,” the band’s production manager – Bill’s (Luke Wilson) ingenious work partner, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it.
