Series info and concept
Roadies is a Showtime original comedy and drama series. Created and executive produced by Cameron Crowe, the show has premiered on June 26, 2016, J.J. Abrams, Winnie Holzman, Bryan Burk and Lan Goldstein also executive produce the series, which hails from Bad Robot Productions, Vinyl Films, Dooley & Company Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
A behind-the-scenes look at the multi-city rock band tour, Roadies focuses on the road crew that actually makes the tour happen. Bill (Luke Wilson), the tour manager of the fictional The Staton House Band and Shelli, tour production manager lead the crew through thick and thin of the tour. The rest of the cast includes Rafe Spall (Reg Whitehead), Imogen Poots (Kelly Ann), Keisha Castle-Hughes (Donna Mancini), Peter Cambor (Milo), Colson Baker (Wes) and Ron White (Phil).
Criticism, ratings and renewal potential
The show`s been criticized for major industry inaccuracies, and for the fact that it does not portray the roadies` life as they are attending to specific tour-related matters, but rather concentrates on their personal lives. This indeed makes it one in a series of similar workplace comedies that may take place against any setting. Of course, Roadies is not claiming to be a reality series or a documentary program, so it is allowed a certain amount of leeway with the material. The show has a reasonable 6.9/10 IMDb score and draws an average of 0.34 million viewers for the first three episodes of its freshman season. The season contains 10 episodes, so there`s still time to monitor the ratings and see whether or not the show is likely to be renewed for a second chapter.
