'Parenthood' Alum Boards NBC's Rob Lowe Comedy
Rosa Salazar will play the receptionist at the tennis and golf club in "The Pro."
NBC's tennis and golf pro shop has found its snarky receptionist.
Parenthood alum Rosa Salazar has boarded the network's Rob Lowe-Rob Riggle comedy The Pro, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The single-camera comedy is set in and around a tennis and golf club pro shop, and stars Lowe as Ben Bertrahm, a former doubles champion who is reunited with his ex-partner Bobby Welch (Riggle) after a public feud that left them both floundering in life.
Salazar will play Jamie, the naive girl with a big heart who works at the pro shop as a receptionist. The character with an edge has romantic feelings for the club's snack bar himbo, Chad, and has had her heart broken a few times.
The casting brings Salazar back into the NBC fold after her recurring role on Parenthood. Her recent credits include HBO's Hello Ladies, Ben and Kate and American Horror Story. Repped by Paradigm, Seven Summits and Nelson Davis, she co-starred in Fox's family assassin drama Boomerang last pilot season.
King of the Hill's Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory will pen the script for The Pro, with Lowe, Karey Burke, Marc Gurvitz and Todd Holland exec producing. Holland will also direct the single-camera pilot. Key & Peele's Colton Dunn co-stars as Lewis, the club's head engineer and bookie.
