When Showtime released the first real trailer for Cameron Crowe’s upcoming series Roadies, it confirmed many people’s suspicion that it would be a jubilant paean to the crazy world of rock ‘n’ roll music and the wild characters who keep it spinning—which is to say, a Cameron Crowe project. This newly released trailer is mostly more of the same with slightly less Vaseline smeared across the lens, allowing a little bit more of the weirdness and grime of life on the road to come through. We get a few amusing character moments, such as a New Jersey-born crew member (Peter Cambor) attempting and hastily abandoning an affected British accent when the band’s new financial advisor (Rafe Spall) threatens him with unemployment. We also get a quick look at some kind of awkward threesome action. On the whole, this trailer portends a more interesting show than its somewhat overly saccharine predecessor.
Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, and Imogen Poots will star alongside Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, and Machine Gun Kelly. Crowe wrote and directed the pilot episode and will also serve as executive producer right beside J. J. Abrams and Winnie Holzman (My So-Called Life).
Roadies will premiere on Showtime June 26th at 10 p.m. ET.
