Rob Lowe In Boise?
Could the popular actor be working in the City of Trees? Lowe will be staring with Fred Savage in the new Fox TV series 'The Grinder' this Fall. The show's setting will be Boise reports the Idaho Statesman. The article reveals how popular shows like Dallas that filmed in Los Angeles. One expert in the article believes that 'The Grinder' will reference Boise without actually filming here. It also reviews the number of recent 'Idaho Connections' to the television and film industry recently.
On a personal note, I was looking forward to watching The Grinder before the link to Idaho. I was disappointed that the local folks didn't pick up on the Gem State connection in the Fox Series 'Wayward Pines' that starred Matt Dillon. I do believe we'll see the folks from Hollywood if this show is a hit.
The NBC Series 'The Office' was about a paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania that filmed in Los Angeles. That didn't stop the town of Scranton from hosting 'The Office Day' complete with a parade and several of the series stars flying out from California. I certainly believe we can match their enthusiasm depending on the quality and popularity of The Grinder.
