Raleigh, N.C. — A Duke graduate and his famous father are on the hunt for bigfoot and other spooky legends across the country.
Actor Rob Lowe and his sons, Matthew and John Owen, will be tracking their journey through the A&E docuseries "The Lowe Files." Matthew Owen graduated from Duke University last year.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lowe said he thought he was going to be killed during an encounter with a bigfoot creature while filming the show in the Ozark Mountains, which stretch between Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
Lowe says he and his sons were camping there to investigate a bigfoot-like creature known to locals as a "wood ape" during a shoot for "The Lowe Files" when something began to approach their camp. Lowe says he was lying on the ground thinking he was going to be killed.
He adds that he's "fully aware" the story makes him sound like "a crazy, Hollywood kook."
"The Lowe Files" premieres Aug. 2.
