iflix has acquired exclusive rights in the Philippines to the first season of Warner Bros. Television’s new original series Roadies.
Created by Oscar-winning writer-director Cameron Crowe and produced by J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot Productions, Roadies is an insider’s look at the reckless, romantic, funny, and often poignant lives of a committed group of “roadies.” It showcases individuals who live for music as well as the de facto family they’ve formed on the road.
The series chronicles the rock world through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes. It also puts on the spotlight the backstage workers touring with the successful arena-level group, The Staton-House Band.
Luke Wilson stars as the band’s tour manager opposite Carla Gugino 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. The entire incredible first season will be available to stream or download exclusively on iflix.
Also part of the cast are Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, Colson Baker a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly, and Ron White. Luis Guzman, Jacqueline Byers, Finesse Mitchell, Branscombe Richmond, and Tanc Sade guest on the show.
Cameron Crowe wrote and directed the pilot episode and is executive producer of the series along with Winnie Holzman, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, and Len Goldstein. Kathy Lingg is co-executive producer. Kelly Curtis, Pearl Jam’s manager and a regular collaborator with Crowe, serves as producer. Roadies is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Vinyl Films, and Dooley & Company Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.
