Lowe seeks ‘Truth’ at WB

Actor joins Gervais, Garner in comedy

Rob Lowe has been set to star with Ricky Gervais and Jennifer Garner in “This Side of the Truth,” a comedy Gervais and Matt Robinson wrote together and will co-direct.

Picture was set up as part of the Media Rights Capital slate; MRC made a distribution deal with Warner Bros. The film will be produced by Lynda Obst and Oly Obst. Shooting begins in the spring.

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.

Lowe stars in the ABC series “Brothers & Sisters.” His company, LoweProfile, has set two projects at ABC Studios, a crime drama and a relationship-based reality series.
