There’s no denying Rosa Salazar is a pro, especially after landing her next television project.
The Latina actress, who rose to acclaim on NBC’s family drama Parenthood, has been cast in the network’s Rob Lowe-Rob Riggle comedy The Pro, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The comedy, which is set in and around a tennis and golf club pro shop, 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.
Her recent credits include HBO‘s Hello Ladies, Ben and Kate and American Horror Story. She also 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.
Key & Peele‘s Colton Dunn co-stars as Lewis, the club’s head engineer and bookie.
