Rob Lowe and Jenna Fischer Will Face the End of the World Together In ‘Apocalypse Slough’

Rob Lowe (Parks & Rec), Jenna Fischer (The Office) and Megan Mullally (Tammy Two on Parks & Rec and the real-life Mrs. Nick Offerman) are set to star in a very interesting-sounding new miniseries headed to Sky 1 this year and NBC sometime after that. It’s called Apocalypse Slough, and it follows a group of friends who learn that a giant, life-destroying asteroid is on a collision course with earth. That sounds pretty depressing or at least like a show better suited to Bruce Willis than Pam from The Office, but the show is being called a “witty epic” and it certainly has the right cast if it’s looking for droll humor. Lowe will play a Vatican employee called “The Devil’s Advocate”—a person tasked with finding reasons to not elect candidates to sainthood, which is a position that actually existed until 1983. Fischer will play a librarian who is out of jail after serving a sentence for a crime she didn’t commit. Mullally will play a street smart white supremacist. Stay tuned …
