Great news Cameron Crowe fans! The celebrated director of Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire has teamed up with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams for a new TV series, Roadies and Amazon Prime Video will launch the show exclusively in the UK for Amazon Prime Members from Monday 4th July.
Executive produced by Crowe, Abrams and Winnie Holzman (My So Called Life, Wicked), Roadies follows the day to day life of a successful rock tour, focusing on the roadies instead of the band and celebrates the crew members who travel from city to city, moving heaven and earth to give the fans an unforgettable experience.
Starring Luke Wilson (Old School), Carla Gugino (Watchmen), Imogen Poots (Green Room), Rafe Spall (Prometheus), Keisha Castle-Hughes (Game of Thrones), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles), Richard Colson Baker a.k.a Machine Gun Kelly (Nerve) and Ron White (Horrible Bosses), Roadies sees Crowe back in his element, portraying life on the road for those that work in the business of rock n’ roll.
Brad Beale, Vice President of Worldwide Television Acquisition for Amazon said: “Cameron Crowe and Winnie Holzman are both amazing story tellers and having both of their voices behind Roadies makes it one of the most anticipated series of the year. Joining shows like The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Mr. Robot, Preacher and the upcoming Clarkson, Hammond and May show, The Grand Tour, Roadies is a great addition to our line-up and we’re sure that Prime customers are going to love it.”
Episodes 1 and 2 of Roadies will air on Amazon Prime Video on Monday 4th July with new episodes following weekly just one day after their US premiere. Amazon customers who are not already members can start a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime by visiting www.amazon.co.uk/primevideo.
