Castle-Hughes (“Whale Rider”) will portray the band’s outspoken and passionate sound mixer, Spall (“One Day”) will play a wildly successful British financial advisor sent by management to oversee the crew’s budget and Cambor (“NCIS: Los Angeles”) stars as an offbeat American anglophile guitar tech.
Crowe, who famously toured with rock bands as a teenage Rolling Stone writer, wrote the pilot and will direct it, too.
Winnie Holzman (“My So-Called Life”), will executive produce and serve as showrunner, along with executive producers Crowe, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg is co-executive producer.
