It's one and done for Roadies. Showtime has cancelled the freshman summer series after its first season. Following an eclectic road crew who work on a rock band's major tour, the hour-long dramatic comedy premiered in June for a 10-episode run that ended in late August.
Created by Cameron Crowe, the series marked the famed writer-director's first foray into television. Reception by both audiences and critics, however, was decidedly mixed, resulting in lackluster ratings that fell short of expectations.
Roadies' cancellation is the third music-related series casualty this summer. HBO's Vinyl and FX's Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll were both recently axed after failing to catch on with viewers.
