Rob Lowe, in many ways, is just like every other American dad. His sons are growing up, moving out, creating lives of their own, and like many fathers, he just wants to spend a little more time with them. For some dads, that means fishing trips and hiking, for others it’s trips to Vegas. But those dads aren’t Rob Lowe.
The actor has had a lifelong fascination with the mysterious and the paranormal, and so, as his sons approach that magic age, he’s decided to load them in the truck and head out on a road trip to explore the paranormal. For those of you wishing you could be a fly on that wall, you’re in luck. A&E has decided to build a show around the Lowe’s investigations. That show is “The Lowe Files” and it premieres August 2, 2017 at 10 pm EST.
Rob, Matthew, and John Owen will visit new locations each week, investigating everything from alien sightings to rumors of violent hauntings. Along the way, they’ll be joined by professional investigators and scientific experts from across the country as they seek the truth behind some of the greatest legends and phenomena in the country.
Lowe admits his lifelong obsession doesn’t equal know how, referring to himself and his sons as “paranormal idiots”, but the trio are eager to learn and from the trailer below they approach the subject with gusto.
Check out the trailer and don’t miss “The Lowe Files” on August 2 at 10 pm EST on A&E.
