Rob Lowe is taking a trip down memory lane and he's taking Kevin Falls and ABC along for the ride. The former Brat Pack star of silver and small screen just sold a 1970s family drama project called 'The Point' to ABC, along with executive producer Kevin Falls.
Falls was one of the executive producers of 'The West Wing,' a hit series that featured Lowe in a main role. Falls is also a producer on 'Franklin & Bash,' which Lowe guested on earlier this year. Lowe's more recent television work includes two characters who could not be more different; one of them recurred on 'Californication' and the other was a regular on 'Parks & Recreation.' After receiving critical acclaim for his work in the HBO movie 'Behind the Candelabra,' Lowe seems primed to put together a brand new project--and an autobiographical one at that.
'The Point' centers on a single mother and her two teenagers who move from Indiana to Malibu in the summer of 1976. The Byrd family must navigate the cross currents of colorful personalities, power land grabs, dead friends and lovers, cheating hearts, and seismic cultural changes that will transform Malibu from a quirky middle-class beach town to the iconic coastal destination of today’s rich and famous. Much like the plot of the show, Lowe grew up in Ohio before moving to Malibu’s Point Dume area with his mom and brother when he was a teenager.
Lowe also recently sold a project called 'The Pro' to NBC, which has the actor attached to star. It would seem that Lowe will remain behind the scenes on 'The Point,' but that could always change. More on this project as it develops.
