Robert aka Bob Allen (James Wolk) - or whatever he prefers to call himself - is a con man. More than that, he's a brilliant one who always has a scheme up his sleeve.

FOX's provocative soap opera Lonestar follows his lying and treacherous deeds throughout Texas, where this con artist splits his time between two identities. Using his charisma and know-how, he's manipulating the oil industry while keeping it a secret from his women. But he wants to quit.

When he's Bob, he lives in Houston with his wife Cat (Adrianne Palicki). Things are going smoothly there, especially since she's the daughter of oil industry bigshot Clint (Jon Voight). The family's more than wealthy and extravagant, which means Bob simply can't leave this life behind for his other one.

Speaking of which, he keeps up another life as Robert, in the suburban west Texas town of Midland. His second identity consists of a perfect relationship with girlfriend Lindsay (Eloise Mumford), who's sweet, naïve and oblivious of his exploits.

Some of the trouble that Robert gets into includes tricking local investors of their savings, conning them all out of their cash. The deception hasn't failed him in years, until some of his relatives start getting suspicious.

His brother-in-law, Drew (Bryce Johnson) has constantly been admiring Bob's work since he came into the family. Meanwhile, another brother-in-law named Trammell (Mark Deklin) isn't as trusting of him. As they start to worry about him, he has even more to be nervous about.

As all the lies catch up to him, Bob must decide what to hold on to. There's his respect for his father-in-law, his loyalty to his own dad John (David Keith) who has mentored him for years, and of course his love for the women. It's getting dangerous for this Lonestar to keep his act together, especially since he's on the verge of getting caught.

Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Depth of Field Productions and Keyser/Lippman Productions, Lonestar is a new type of drama examining this swindler's two lives. It was created by Party of Five's Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman, together with Kyle Killen and (500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb.
