Exclusive: Rob Lowe ditches 'Brothers & Sisters' for 'Parks and Recreation'

Posted on

Better yet, file it under “V” and cross-reference it under “G.” Oh, screw the filing and just listen up: Sources confirm to me exclusively that Rob Lowe is nearing a deal to join the cast of TV’s best comedy, Parks and Recreation.

I’m told that Lowe, who, as you know, is leaving Brothers & Sisters at season’s end, would appear in multiple episodes of Parks and Rec beginning later this season and extending into next. (NBC wisely went ahead and renewed the comedy for a third season.)

Details about Lowe’s character are being kept under the tightest of wraps. I should know more as soon as his deal becomes official.

Thoughts? Do you agree with my filing instincts?
