“That day has come.”
Prolific actor, eighties teen heartthrob, Emmy-award winner and all-around national treasure Rob Lowe will star with his two sons, Matthew and John Owen, in an upcoming supernatural-themed A&E docuseries entitled The Lowe Files, in which the trio will travel around the country investigating unsolved legends and “eerie, age-old stories.”
As Rob Lowe himself (star of The Outsiders, St. Elmo’s Fire, and NBC’s The West Wing) tells us (via an A&E press release):
Since I was a kid I’ve loved unexplained legends, strange phenomena and the scary, supernatural stories told around campfires.
When I became a father I shared those tales with my two sons. Together we bonded over Bigfoot, UFOs, and every creepy and 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.
So just to be clear, Rob Lowe (who had memorable roles in both Austin Powers and Wayne’s World) and his sons are going to do a little family bonding while they hunt for Bigfoot, aliens and ghosts. This is the paranormal reality show that we never knew we needed, but we can’t wait to watch!
A&E has picked up 9 episodes of The Lowe Files, which is produced by Critical Content and will air this summer.
What a time to be alive!
