NBC has formally handed a pilot order to The Pro, a single-camera comedy starring Lowe as a former doubles champion who is reunited with his ex-partner after a public feud that left them both floundering in life.

The project, written by Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory (The Larry Sanders Show, Frasier) and to be directed by sitcom vet Todd Holland (Go On, Malcolm in the Middle), will be set in and around a tennis and golf club.
