Rob Lowe will join Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner in the comedy “This Side of the Truth” reports Variety.
The comedy takes place in a world where everybody tells the truth. Gervais plays a storyteller whose job is to ramble on about the 1300s.
Faced with losing his job because his terrain is a boring period in history once he gets beyond the Black Death, he invents lying as a way to save himself. Lowe will play his arch nemesis.
Gervais and Matt Robinson wrote together and will co-direct. Shooting begins in the spring.
