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