In his book Love Life, Rob Lowe says that to save money on the production, the main sets were constructed in an abandoned paint factory in the San Fernando Valley (instead of in a conventional soundstage on a studio lot in a more central location). The air-conditioning system in the ex-factory was faulty and, on hot days when it failed, crew members would often faint from the residual paint fumes. Furthermore, the building was next-door to a dildo factory (the San Fernando Valley is the capital of the U.S. porn and sex-toy industries). Lowe remembered that the same day they were told that the show was canceled (but they would still have to continue filming all 13 episodes for the overseas and DVD markets), there were wildfires in the Valley. The dildo factory was evacuated but the cast and crew of "The Lyon's Den" was not allowed to do the same. See more »
This was one of the shows that I wanted to catch when it first aired, but I ultimately couldn't bring myself in devoting time to this show. With all the shows on politics, the stories can get boring and predictable at times, like this one. There is really nothing original about this film and the acting is quite bland. Rob Lowe was OK, but actors like Kyle Chandler just couldn't act.
It was a drag to sit through this show. With its lack of suspense, urgency and character development, I just had to give up on this show and am glad it was canceled so I would have nothing more to miss.
