In an effort to boost its output of comedy content, Netflix has teamed up with Rob Lowe and his son John Owen Lowe to develop a new comedy series called Unstable, which will tell the story of a socially-challenged son who goes to work for his very successful, wildly eccentric father.
The series, which was announced in April 2022, is produced by the Lowes and Santa Clarita Diet creator Victor Fresco, who will presumably be the head writer as well. No director has been attached to the project as of writing.
Netflix Head of Comedy Tracey Pakosta commented on Unstable:
“We are very excited to be working with Victor, Rob and John Owen. The three of them – and their wildly funny, smart sensibilities – are a perfect fit for our growing slate of scripted comedies.”
