NBC Picks Up Rob Lowe’s ‘The Pro’

Rob Lowe makes his exit from Parks and Recreation in next week’s episode, but once he’s gone, he won’t be too far away.

TV Line reports that NBC, the same network that airs Parks and Rec, has given a pilot order for The Pro, the Lowe-starring tennis sitcom written by Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory of The Larry Sanders Show and Frasier.

Lowe will play a former doubles champion who reunites with his ex-partner after the two experienced a very public falling out that damaged both of their lives.

That is literally the happiest news you’ll read all day.

    Darn! I was hoping it was a show about the Garth Ennis comic.
