Quite possibly the best unscripted television reality show ever will make its debut in December when cable channel Fuse presents “Warped Roadies,” the story of the guys and gals who worked behind the scenes to make this year’s Vans Warped Tour a reality.
When you consider all the reality programs that have filled up television schedules in recent years, you gotta wonder why it took so long to come up with a show based on those duct tape lovin, tool belt wearin’ folks that make concerts possible. Finally, TV has opened its eyes and realized the true story is about the load-in, load-out and everything in between.
And what could be better than a show about roadies working the Warped Tour? When you consider that moving Warped across the country is like moving a small city, albeit a somewhat nosier one, you’ve got more drama, tension and laughs than an entire season of TV watching often provides.
“Working on Warped Tour is like running away to join the circus, and it takes a special breed of person,” Brad Schwartz, Fuse senior VP of programming and operations, said. “’Warped Roadies’” is exactly the kind of program our viewers are looking for; an insider’s look at what it takes to succeed on the country’s biggest traveling festival. We couldn’t be more excited to share these unique characters and their tales from the road with our audience.”
Produced by Magilla Entertainment with exec producers Matthew Ostrom, Brian Flanagan and Laura Palumbo Johnson, “Warped Roadies” is part of Fuse’s original music programming lineup that includes such shows as “Off Beat,” “Video On Trial,” and “Billy On The Street.” You’ll impress your friends and maybe even astound your neighbors when you tell them that Fuse is the national music television network of The Madison Square Garden Company.
But most importantly, the 10 episode “Warped Roadies” debuts on Fuse Dec. 7 at 11 p.m. Eastern time. Click here for more information.
