Rob Lowe is going to find Bigfoot.
The “Parks and Recreation” actor will take the lead in a new reality show in which he and his sons, Matthew and John Owen, travel the country in search of answers to unsolved mysteries, A&E announced Monday.
“Since I was a kid I’ve loved unexplained legends, strange phenomena and the scary, supernatural stories told around campfires,” Lowe said in a press release.
“When I became a father I shared those tales with my two sons. Together we bonded over Bigfoot, UFO’s, 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.”
Each of the nine episodes of “The Lowe Files” will focus on a different “spooky legend.” Missions will include exploring an underwater alien base off the coast of California, training with a top-secret government operative and working with a renowned shaman at an abandoned boys reformatory in Preston Castle in order to connect with spirits.
“Watching Rob, Matthew and John Owen take this awesome 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,” Frontain Bryant, the head of programming at A&E, said in a press release.
“Their explorations will certainly lead them to dynamic and exciting places, but a nostalgic journey for a father and his sons is what’s at the heart of the series’ underlying mission.”
Lowe will also serve as an executive producer on the show.
