Rob Lowe has saved his TV career thanks to Stephen King's horror classic SALEM'S LOT.

The cult 1979 TV series starred David Soul as a vampire hunter and James Mason as a ghoul, and now Lowe is to play the bat stalker and Donald Sutherland his foe.

Rutger Hauer and BABE star James Cromwell also appear in the new $12 million (GBP7 million) TV project.

Lowe's latest TV role as a Washington DC lawyer in LYON'S DEN has been a flop in America.
