This would have to be truly awful not to get a series order. JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot is on the verge of announcing production of a Pay TV pilot for a Showtime series created by Cameron Crowe and run by Winnie Holzman. It’s an ensemble comedy set during a U.S. rock tour and tentatively titled Roadies. Crowe will direct the pilot before the end of the year. It is his first foray into television. This Christmas, the writer-director-Oscar winner’s romantic comedy film starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, and Bill Murray will be released by Sony.
