Roadies is an insider's look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of "roadies", who live for music and the de facto family they've formed along the way. The music-infused ensemble comedy series chronicles the rock world through the eyes of music's unsung heroes and puts the spotlight on the backstage workers who put the show on the road while touring the United States for a successful arena-level band.
