This Monday, Fox will premiere their new drama series Lone Star. We have the full synopsis for the series, as well as a couple of videos to share with you.
Brought to you by the creators of Party of Five, Lone Star follows a man in Texas who’s living a double life. The premise actually sounds interesting enough and I’m often intrigued by big series that star relatively unknown actors. While that certainly doesn’t apply to Jon Voight, James Wolk, who plays Robert/Bob Allen in the series, doesn’t have more than a few credits to his name as of yet.
Below is Fox’s description for the series and further down is a featurette that should give you a better idea of what the show is about. There are also some clips from the premiere for you to check out.
From Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman, the creators of Party of Five; Marc Webb, the director of (500) Days of Summer; and creator Kyle Killen, comes LONE STAR, a provocative new drama set in Texas.
ROBERT/BOB ALLEN (James Wolk) is a charismatic and brilliant schemer who has meticulously constructed two lives in two different parts of Texas. He’s juggling two identities and two women in two very different worlds – all under one mountain of lies.
As “Bob,” he lives in Houston and is married to CAT (Adrianne Palicki), the beautiful daughter of CLINT (Jon Voight), the patriarch of an ultra-wealthy Texas oil family. More than 400 miles away in the suburban west Texas town of Midland, he’s “Robert,” living a second life with his sweet, naïve girlfriend, LINDSAY (Eloise Mumford).
In Midland, he plays the perfect boyfriend while secretly bilking local investors of their savings. In Houston, he’s a devoted husband, charming Cat and her family to cement his position in the rich family business he aims to clean out.
Bob has lived both lives successfully for years without arousing any suspicions…so far. While one brother-in-law, DREW (Bryce Johnson), admires Bob, his other brother-in-law, TRAMMELL (Mark Deklin), is growing suspicious of his motives. With the cons closing in on him, Bob begins to fear his secret lives may unravel as he becomes divided by his love for two women; his loyalty to his father and mentor, JOHN (David Keith); and his respect for his father-in-law, Clint.
Now as he tries to hold his two lives together, while fending off angry investors and the growing suspicions of those around him, Bob puts it all on the line hoping he can beat the odds, leave the schemes behind and keep two separate relationships afloat.
