Christina Hendricks Moving To Showtime For ‘Roadies’ Pilot

Christina Hendricks is moving on from her famous stent on the hit series Mad Men, by joining the cast of an upcoming Showtime pilot titled, Roadies. Taking up the role of Shelli, the five-time Emmy® Award nominee will appear along side Luke Wilson (Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums), Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Academy Award® nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider).

The one hour comedy which will begin filming in early 2015, follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes – the crew members who get the show on the road. According to Showtime, the Cameron Crowe written and directed pilot “ROADIES, follows a hot-ticket tour, but with a simple twist: the band is in the background and the roadies take the spotlight. It’s an inside look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of characters who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way“.
