For the past 20 years, he has regularly found work in such TV series as The West Wing, Brothers & Sisters, Parks and Recreation, Californication, The Grinder and Code Black. His current TV project, for British broadcaster ITV, is starring as Wild Bill, a brash U.S. police officer hired as police chief in eastern England.

From the Cincinnati Arts Association's release: "Inspired by the success of his two New York Times best-selling memoirs, Stories I Only Tell My Friends and Love Life, Rob has created an all-new peek behind the curtain at Hollywood, fame, fatherhood, marriage, and a life lived at the forefront of culture for four decades. Broadway World calls Lowe 'as personable and charismatic of a presence onstage as he is onscreen.' "
