Roadies is the brainchild of Cameron Crowe, who wrote and directed the acclaimed film Almost Famous. Roadies mines similar territory, this time focusing on the behind-the-scenes antics of a band's stage crew in the present day. The roadies are the ultimate music fans, having accepted lives adjacent to the spotlight in exchange for the privilege of being close to the music every night. It's a clever twist in a workplace drama; the workplace just happens to be a different sold-out arena every night. Luke Wilson plays the tour manager, and Carla Gugino is the production manager. These long-time ensemble actors bring understated enthusiasm to their roles, projecting their eagerness to participate in something much bigger. Imogen Poots, is Kelly Ann, a skateboard-riding tech with one foot in music and the other in film. The roadies deal with crazy groupies, stuffy financial directors and their grueling travel schedule, but the focus is always on the people who make the show happen every night.
