“It’s a dream come true for us to jump back into the world of ‘Unstable,'” the Lowes said in a statement. “Here’s to season two and the many hours of family therapy that we will need along the way.”
The Lowes co-created “Unstable” with Fresco. The father-son duo also serve as executive producers along with Gurland and Sean Clements. Claire Scanlon serves as director and executive producer.
The official description of the series states, “Ellis Dragon (Rob Lowe) is a universally admired, eccentric, narcissist-adjacent biotech entrepreneur working to make the world a better place. He’s also in emotional free-fall. His son Jackson Dragon (John Owen Lowe) is… none of those things. Can Jackson save Ellis and his company and salvage their estranged relationship while also doing what may actually be impossible: escaping the shadow of his larger-than-life father?”
The cast of the series also includes Sian Clifford, Rachel Marsh, Emma Ferreira, and Aaron Branch.
Gurland is perhaps best known for creating the FX series “Married.” His other credits include recent shows like “Platonic” at Apple, “Reboot” at Hulu, and “Friends From College” at Netflix. He is repped by WME, Mosaic, and Goodman Genow.
