Stan grabs exclusives on Roadies and The Circus
Fans of road-trip stories, whether from the worlds of rock 'n' roll or politics, will have plenty to watch on Stan.
Stan’s deal with Warner Brothers most famously netted it the local streaming rights to Friends, but it also extends to new series as well. Stan has just announced that it will have the exclusive on the new Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) series Roadies.
As the name suggests, it’s a show about the lives of the touring support crew for music acts, with the promise of a mix of drama, romance and comedy along the way.
Stan will air the first episode on 27 June with subsequent episodes airing after their US debut. Here’s the trailer to whet your appetite:
Keeping things on the road, albeit with a slightly more serious soundtrack, Stan’s also picked up The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth, a series that will track the progress of this year’s US presidential election as it evolves.
The Circus is produced by Bloomberg Politics and promises to offer a bipartisan look at the race for the most influential, if not important job on the planet. Stan will debut 12 episodes on 1 July 2016, and then air new episodes as they’re produced on a weekly basis.
