FOX Orders New Series 9-1-1: Lone Star, Starring Rob Lowe

-

FOX’s No. 1 drama, 9-1-1, is expanding its reach to the city of Austin, Texas, with new installment, 9-1-1: Lone Star, starring Rob Lowe. The series will premiere during the 2019-2020 season on FOX.

“The beauty of having a hit drama like 9-1-1 from the genius minds of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear is it allows you to explore thrilling stories as told through an array of distinctive characters,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, FOX Entertainment.

“In 9-1-1: Lone Star, they’ve given us a special opportunity to expand the franchise into new territory – literally and figuratively — and we’re thrilled to have the incomparable Rob Lowe headline this new iteration when it joins our schedule next season.”

Lowe added, “Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear’s ability to make smart, unique, great television is unmatched. I’m elated to join this team.”

From 9-1-1 co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, 9-1-1: Lone Star follows a sophisticated New York cop (Lowe) who, along with his son, re-locates to Austin, and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life. Lowe will serve as co-executive producer on the series.

Over the last year, Rob Lowe’s projects include starring in and directing a remake of the four-time Academy Award nominated film, The Bad Seed; shooting Netflix’s Christmas in the Wild; hosting and producing FOX’s Mental Samurai, the thrilling new competition series and first-ever obstacle course for the mind; and most recently, playing high-flying U.S. cop Bill Hixon, in a six-part series for ITV, Wild Bill.

9-1-1: Lone Star is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear are creators and executive producers on the series. Lowe will serve as a co-executive producer on the series.
