Fox Orders “9-1-1” Spin-Off With Rob Lowe

FOX has greenlit a second series in the “9-1-1″ franchise,” “9-1-1: Lone Star,” with this one starring Rob Lowe.

Lowe plays a sophisticated New York cop who, along with his son, re-locates to Austin, Texas, and must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life.

Lowe reportedly stands to make more than $200,000 per episode for his role on the show, which is slated to premiere during the 2019-2020 season and from “9-1-1” co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear.

Lowe currently hosts the Fox game show “Mental Samurai” and previously starred in the Fox single-cam comedy “The Grinder”.
