Keisha Castle-Hughes, Rafe Spall and Peter Cambor have joined Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots in Cameron Crowe‘s 1-hour pilot “Roadies,” the network announced Monday.

TheWrap previously reported Wilson’s and Poots’ involvement in the rock-and-roll-tour drama, but Showtime has revealed their roles: Wilson will play road-weary, sleep-deprived tour manager Bill, while Poots will play Kelly Anna, a first-rate electrical tech.

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.
