We’re looking back at stars sharing screen time with their kids, starting with this dynamic duo. In the new Netflix series Unstable, Rob Lowe and his son John Owen Lowe play an eccentric biotech genius and his introverted polar-opposite child who are forced to work together in a comedy that is both funny and heartwarming.
Rob Lowe has worked in film for over four decades and has starred in films like Thursday’s Child, The Grinder, and Holiday in the Wild. He’s also an actor, producer, and writer and has cocreated Unstable with his son.
The new comedy centers on Ellis Dragon (Rob), an emotionally needy and eccentric biotech entrepreneur having a hard time dealing with losing his wife. Meanwhile, his son Jackson (John) is an incredibly stable young man who doesn’t have much patience for his father’s self-absorption.
Their relationship in the show is very relatable to many people who’ve been through something similar.
John is very similar to his dad in terms of how he deals with his mental health, and the actor has spoken about how he’s been a source of support for his son. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, he said that his father helped him get sober at a young age and has been a huge source of encouragement.
They both have a good sense of humor, and they’re not afraid to get physical with each other, which is a fun element of the show. In the show’s promotional video, they’re both enjoying themselves as they tease each other — and it makes for a cute, relatable clip.
It’s a great father-son show adapted from the real-life relationship between Rob and John, who often antagonize each other on social media.
The real-life pair has been sharing their lighthearted banter on social media, inspiring the comedy. According to producer Victor Fresco, the pair have been working on the project since 2015.
As a former police officer, I know firsthand how important it is to have a robust support system when facing difficult situations. Thankfully, I have had a lot of help from my family, including my mother and grandmother.
I recommend this to everyone, especially people who have children. It’s a powerful show that is very well done, and it is not easy to watch at all times, but it is necessary to bring this to the forefront of our culture.
The acting and script are fantastic, and it’s a gripping story that shows how racist the police were in Dahmer’s time. It’s a story that we need to remember and teach our kids.
The story is slow initially, but it picks up and gets very tense, and I recommend anyone interested in checking it out.
