LONDON — Twentieth Century Fox Television has sold “The Lyon’s Den,” starring Rob Lowe, to U.K. commercial web Five.
Lowe plays an idealistic attorney, Jack Turner, who is determined to make his mark while struggling to escape the shadow of his father, a U.S. senator.
“The Lyon’s Den” is produced by Brad Grey Television in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television. Series is executive produced by Remi Aubuchon (“24”), Rod Holcomb (“ER”), Bernie Brillstein (“Just Shoot Me”), Kevin Falls (“The West Wing”) and Lowe.
“Although the series has yet to air in the U.S. on NBC, I am confident it will be a hit with our viewers and be an important addition to our impressive array of America’s finest shows,” said Five’s director of acquisitions Jeff Ford. Five did not reveal how much it paid for the series or where it intends to schedule the show.
