New York, NY (November 5, 2012) – Fuse, the national music television network of The Madison Square Garden Company, announced today that Warped Roadies, a new original half-hour unscripted series, will premiere on Friday, December 7 at 11:00pm EST. Warped Roadies follows the stories, trials, and tribulations of the crew charged with keeping the 2012 Vans Warped Tour rolling as it travels across the country. This one-of-a-kind, ten episode series is a unique addition to Fuse’s lineup of music programming, offering viewers unique insight and a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run America’s largest tour.
Music lovers have enjoyed their favorite bands live on-stage at the Vans Warped Tour since its creation 18 years ago. And now, for the first time on television, fans will get to see the show that happens off stage. In 51 days, the Vans Warped Tour roadies travel 16,000 miles to set up 41 shows for over 250 bands. They consume 82,000 meals and over 18,000 cups of coffee, all while battling rainstorms and record heat.
“Working on Warped Tour is like running away to join the circus, and it takes a special breed of person,” said Brad Schwartz, senior vice president, programming and operations, Fuse. “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.”
Warped Roadies is produced by Magilla Entertainment (Bayou Billionaires, Moonshiners, Long Island Medium) with Executive Producers Matthew Ostrom, Brian Flanagan and Laura Palumbo Johnson.
