Lonestar is the new and improved name of Midland. The show has been picked up! Yes, Adrianne’s returning to prime time television with her brunette hair. Below is a sneak peek of Lonestar.
FOX is giving the fall “House” lead-in to “Lonestar,” a provocative soap set against the backdrop of the Texas oil culture. It comes to the network courtesy of Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman, the creators of “Party of Five”; Marc Webb, the director of “(500) Days of Summer”; and creator Kyle Killen.
Newcomer James Wolk is Robert/Bob Allen, a charismatic schemer who has meticulously constructed two lives in two different parts of Texas. As “Bob,” he lives in Houston and is married to Cat (Adrianne Palicki, “Friday Night Lights”), the beautiful daughter of Clint (Jon Voight, 24, “Midnight Cowboy”), the patriarch of an ultra-wealthy Texas oil family. In Houston, he’s a devoted husband, charming Cat and her family to cement his position in the rich family business he aims to clean out.
More than 400 miles away in the suburban west Texas town of Midland, he’s “Robert,” living a second life with his sweet, naive girlfriend, Lindsay (Eloise Mumford, “Mercy,” “Law & Order: SVU”). He plays the perfect boyfriend while secretly bilking local investors of their savings. Bob has lived both lives successfully for years without arousing any suspicions…so far.
