Christina Hendricks, best known for playing Joan Harris on Mad Men, has joined the cast of Showtime’s Roadies pilot.

Christina Hendricks Joins ‘Roadies’ Cast

In Roadies, Hendricks will play Shellie, the production manager of a successful rock band that’s currently on tour. Shellie is billed as “tough, but privately emotional, married to her job… and scary-good at it,” reported Deadline. She’ll work alongside a guy named Bill, who will be played by Luke Wilson (Old School, Legally Blonde).

Instead of focusing on the band, Roadies will take a close look at the crew members behind the scene that make the tour possible, turning a band’s talent into a successful series of concerts.

Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Oscar-nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider) fill out the cast of the Roadies pilot.

The Roadies pilot, a one-hour comedy by Cameron Crowe, will start filming in 2015 in Vancouver.

The second half of Mad Men’s final season will begin airing in spring of 2015.
