March 20 - — Film and television icon Rob Lowe and his sons Matthew and John are to star in The- Lowe Files, a nine-episode docu-series for A&E Network.The project was formally announced Monday by Elaine Frontain Bryant, the network’s executive vice president and head of programming.”Since I was a kid I’ve loved unexplained legends, strange phenomena and the scary, supernatural stories told around campfires,” Lowe asserted in a statement. “When I became a dad I shared those tales with my two sons. Together we bonded over Bigfoot, UFOs, and each one creepy and bizarre tale we could find, passionately debating if they were real… or not. And we swore in that someday the three of us would go on our own adventure to find out. That day has come.” “Watching Rob, Matthew and John Owen take this impressive adventure together, something in that has long been a part of their family narrative, is the kind of organic programming in that our viewers respond to best,” added Frontain Bryant. “Their explorations will certainly direct them to dynamic and thrilling places, yet a nostalgic journey for a dad and his sons is what’s at the heart of the series’ underlying mission.”Rob Lowe, 53, is known for his films The- Outsiders, St. Elmo’s Fire, About Last Night and Wayne’s World, as well as the TV shows The- West Wing, Brothers & Sisters, Parks and Recreation and Code Black.
