According to Variety, actor Luke Wilson has signed on to star in the Showtime series about the tour roadies for an arena rock group. In a statement, Crowe said, “Showtime has a great track record with music-based projects, and they’ve been wonderful partners. The actors are all so passionate about music too, and the whole show has the feeling of stories and music shared between friends.”
