The four episode series, Liberty or Death: Boston Tea Party, will debut on Fox Nation Nov. 19.
“The Boston Tea party was a momentous event that transformed the trajectory of American history and remains significant nearly 250 years later,” Fox Nation president Jason Klarman said in a statement. “Throughout this series, viewers will feel as if they are transported back in time, and we are thrilled to have someone as iconic as Rob Lowe fronting this project.”
Fox Nation has leaned into well-known Hollywood stars over the last year, as it seeks out original programming that would appeal to Fox News super fans. Among the programming has been a pair of stand-up comedy specials, from Roseanne Barr and Rob Schneider, as well as docuseries fronted by the likes of Kevin Costner and Kelsey Grammer.
