Pilot News: Wonder Years' Fred Savage Is Rob Lowe's Bro in Fox's The Grinder

Fred Savage Pilot Rob Lowe

The Wonder Years’ Fred Savage will play brother to Rob Lowe in the Fox pilot The Grinder.

In the single-camera comedy, Lowe stars as beloved TV lawyer Dean Sanderson (aka “The Grinder”). When his long-running hit series comes to an end, Dean finds himself at a crossroads in life and decides to move back to his small hometown, thinking he has the experience to take over his family’s law firm.

Back home, Dean is welcomed with open and star-struck arms, except when it comes to his brother Stewart (Savage), a hard-working attorney and family man, our sister site Deadline reports.

Since bidding Kevin Arnold adieu, Savage’s on-camera TV credits have included NBC’s late-’90s comedy Working, an SVU visit and ABC’s one-and-done Crumbs sitcom.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  1. Yes, but which Rob Lowe is it? Is it Meathead Robe Lowe?

  2. Steven says:

    He also had a very funny cameo on Happy Endings as himself.

    • Nero tTVf says:

      Unfortunately, NBC didn’t green light ‘The Pro’ last spring/2014, in which RL and [I believe?] Rob Riggle would have starred. Too bad. The concept looked pretty good.

    No one trusts Rob as star in a series its not going to change so why does he keep getting offers?
