Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks is set to star opposite Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots in Showtime‘s hourlong comedy pilot Roadies, written, directed and executive produced by Cameron Crowe and executive produced by Winnie Holzman and J.J. Abrams. Roadies follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour as seen through the eyes of the crew members who help get the show on the road. Hendricks will play Shelli, the band’s production manager – Bill’s (Wilson) ingenious work partner, tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it. Rafe Spall, Peter Cambor and Keisha Castle-Hughes co-star in the pilot, which will shoot in Vancouver in early 2015.
Best known for her role as Joan Harris on Mad Men, Hendricks, repped by Link Management and ICM Partners, recently signed on for an arc on the Comedy Central comedy series Another Period. She will next be seen in Dark Places, opposite Charlize Theron, and in John Slattery’s Sundance film God’s Pocket.
