Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks has found her next gig. The five-time Emmy nominee will star in Showtime’s Roadies one-hour comedy pilot, which follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour. Hendricks will play the fictional band’s production manager.
She’s joining a strong cast on the pilot, including the previously announced Luke Wilson (Old School), Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles), and Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider).
Hendricks is best known for AMC’s Mad Men, which will air its final episodes in the spring. She’ll also be seen in the film Dark Places, adapted from Gillian Flynn’s bestseller.
Christina Hendricks is attached to star in Jonathan Lynn-directed female buddy movie The Hurricanes, about three very different women who reunite to resurrect their once chart-topping 80s girl band.
Metro International is shopping Annalisa D’Innella’s script at the AFM, with shoot slated to get underway in February 2015.
Producers are Annalise Davis (The Railway Man) and Rajita Shah with Golden Globe-winning music producer Jimmy Harry also on board.
Additional casting is underway.
Additional finance comes from Belgian co-producers Entre Chien Et Loup (Filth), Creative England and Cutting Edge Group (The King’s Speech).
The script was selected at the Toronto Film Festival as one of 15 projects in the Finance Forum and was one of 10 UK projects with development support from MEDIA in 2012/13.
The script follows Kim Ayers, who twenty years earlier was the perkiest member of a hit 80s girl-band, The Hurricanes. Today, she works as a children’s entertainer and struggles to raise her daughter alone. But things seem set to change when an iconic Hurricanes tune is sampled by top rapper MC Freak and shoots straight to number one.
Kim tracks down Freak but soon discovers that a dodgy contract proves he owes her nothing. Nonetheless, struck by her fighting spirit, he offers her a lifeline. He will let her perform with him, but there’s a catch. He wants all three of the ‘The Hurricanes’.
So Kim must locate estranged band-mates Nicky Bliss, last seen in rehab and Alex Moon, now an angry feminist poet, and persuade them to resurrect their once chart topping band.
Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks has rounded out the cast of Comedy Central’s Another Period, signing on for an arc on the 10-episode series written, executive produced and starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome. Set in the turn of the century, Another Period follows the misadventures of the Bellacourts, Newport, RI’s first family, who have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money it doesn’t matter.
Emmy-nominated Hendricks will play Chair, a new servant on the estate who is not who she appears to be.
Musings about muse Christina Hendricks
“The skin, the smile, the spirit, the body, the hair, the color. Everything,” says Westwood, who has known Hendricks since she was the face of her Palladium jewelry collection three years ago. “To look at, she’s very special. She’s like a rose in full bloom. She’s absolutely gorgeous.” Of the designer, who is married to Andreas Kronthaler, 48, also her creative director, Hendricks says: “I’ve been a fan for so long, and I’m constantly amazed at the masterful technician that she is — but always acknowledging history and always one step ahead of everyone else at the same time. And she’s a bit of a provocateur, which I admire.”
