Andrea Savage (Dinner for Schmucks) is set to co-star opposite Rob Lowe and Rob Riggle in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot The Pro, from ABC Studios and Uni TV. Written by Pete Huyck and Alex Gregory, The Pro centers on former tennis doubles champion “Big Ben” Bertrahm (Lowe), whose career flame-out and misguided investments have left him working as the pro at a tennis and golf club. Savage, repped by UTA and Mosaic, will play Paula, the Club manager, who is in way over her head and has a wee little crush on Big Ben. She will next be seen on the Hulu series Hotwives of Orlando.

Lindsay Price is set to co-star opposite Christian Borle and Jonathan Ryland in NBC’s multi-camera comedy pilot Lifesaver, from writer Wil Calhoun, Uni TV and TBD Entertainment. The odd couple comedy centers on the uptight, controlling and a bit neurotic Dr. Graham Permenter (Borle) and loose cannon Leon (Ryland), who become inextricably linked after Leon saves Graham’s life by giving him a kidney. Price plays Jennifer, Graham’s girlfriend and a doctor at the hospital with him and doesn’t mind Leon in the way that Graham does.
