Machine Gun Kelly) and Winston (Ethan Michael Mora).

A few quick thoughts on tonight's Roadies coming up just as soon as I really like jazz... In my initial review of this show, I alluded to the dire nature of last week's episode, "The Bryce Newman Letter." Noel Murray and Mo Ryan did an excellent job of pointing out the many things that went awry with that one, and if a show with a creator I respected even slightly less than Cameron Crowe put out an hour like that, I'd be a cloud of dust with motion lines getting the hell away from it. Instead, I decided to give Roadies one more shot to see if "Bryce Newman" was an aberration, and was rewarded with easily the best episode of this young series in "The City Whose Name Must Not Be Spoken." Neither Crowe nor Winnie Holzman do cruel all that well, which is one of the many reasons "Bryce Newman" went so sour. »

It's Summer, which is great for your tan and all, but it's bad for filling your pop culture tank. Network comedies wrapped up months ago for the season, Game of Thrones tucked itself in for another year last month, and Orange Is the New Black's latest season flashed in and out of our lives like a Summer storm. Those are all factors that should make you go outside and play Pokémon Go or whatever, but if you're like me, it just propels you toward trying to find new TV shows to be obsessed with. There are scores of vintage shows you could binge, of course, but there are a handful of intriguing new series for the Summer. There's one in particular that's growing on me, slowly and sweetly: Roadies. It's not like the instant chemistry I felt from The Night Of, which inspires conspiracy theories and paranoia from the first viewing; instead, »

Carla Gugino made for a great Silk Spectre in Watchmen, but that role shockingly hasn't led to the actress starring in more comic book adaptations. She's expressed an interest in playing Catwoman in a future Batman movie (a role she would arguably be perfect for), but beyond that, there's currently no sign of her reuniting with director Zack Snyder for some sort of appearance in the DC Films Universe. Of course, Gugino did voice Kelor in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, but that's not quite the same thing as an actual physical role! It remains to be seen whether or not we'll hear her in Justice League, but which character do you think she would be well suited to? Check out the awesome photos from her recent chat with Shape below, and then let us know your thoughts in the usual place. »
The Glades vet will appear during a Season 1 episode of the recently premiered Showtime series as Taylor Swift’s tour manager — aka the husband of Staton-House Band production manager Shelli, played by Carla Gugino.

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note is that AMPAS seemed to actively seek out women, minorities, and younger artists, hoping to make the demographics of the Academy slightly less centered on older white males. It won’t suddenly change the makeup of the Oscar nominations or upend how the Academy Awards go down next year, but it’s a slow step in the right direction, and that’s worth applauding for sure. As you can see below, in addition to basically all of last year’s Oscar winners, the new members are a diverse slate. Among the names you’ll see in the acting branch now are John Boyega, »

But the space program wants to send him back to Mars, since his body can’t handle Earth’s environment.

In quick (and shamelessly Showtime-y) fashion, Roadies first introduces us to tour manager Bill (played by Luke Wilson) as he unwittingly beds a bigwig promoter’s (very) young daughter — which is par for the course for the divorcé, production manager Shelli (Carla Gugino) later points out. The premiere revolves around the Staton-House Band’s tour stop in New Orleans, where we next meet Kelly Ann (Imogen Poots), an electrician on the cusp of »

Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous is one of the recently down-on-his-luck director’s finest films, a beautiful and touching tribute to the passion and power of rock ‘n’ roll. Its characters hum with urgency and life; its screenplay is a rawly funny, exuberantly upbeat exploration of idols and idealism, and the ways in which we can find hope in a world often intent on suffocating it. The same subject matter, especially that regarding the relationships between people whose admiration for music and lyrics has been channeled into a fully immersive profession, is on display in Crowe’s new Showtime series, Roadies, even if the show (in its early episodes) never comes close to matching the sheer potency and emotion of something as fully formed as Almost Famous.
Instead, the long-in-the-works project unfurls as an overly saccharine, if well-meaning peek behind the curtain of a music tour, »

Go on tour with the Staton-House Band, and get to know the colorful road crew who work behind the scenes of the stadium-filling rock band. Luke Wilson and Carla Gugino star as the band’s tour manager and production manager, and the series also stars Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor and Richard Colson Baker, a.k.a. rapper Machine Gun Kelly. This cool and nostalgic series comes from the musical mind of writer/director Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) and is the Oscar winner’s first foray into television. [...]

There’s little doubt that Cameron Crowe has a passion for music — his character-driven movies have famously celebrated the world of rock, whether by chronicling the life of a young journalist in “Almost Famous” or through the soundtracks woven through “Singles” or “Say Anything.”
Now he’s turning his creative skills to the small screen for the first time with Showtime’s “Roadies,” the story of the crew-turned-family behind the scenes of the Staton-House Band tour. Crowe created the series, working alongside executive producer Winnie Holzman (“My So-Called Life”).
Here, he tells Variety why he decided to make the move to television, why he’s frustrated with the movie business, and why he had to make some tough creative decisions along the way.
How did this project begin?
