Rob Lowe is leaving Parks and Recreation halfway through this season, and now we know where he's going once he leaves Pawnee: Another NBC sitcom. According to Deadline, NBC has given a production commitment to The Pro, a single-camera comedy from Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy) in which Lowe would play a washed-up tennis star stuck working as a pro at a local tennis club. Sure, some of us were hoping Lowe's next role would be something more on the Sam Seaborn side of the spectrum, but okay.
