Universal Pictures Hires Pros


Universal Pictures has picked up Pros, a comedy from writers Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory for Mary Parent and Scott Stuber to produce via their Stuber/Parent.

The story is set in motion after a fire destroys a local YMCA’s tennis courts. A local country club allows the kids to use its courts for the summer, and a rivalry develops between a hardworking blue-collar YMCA pro and a blue-blooded playboy country club pro.

Huyck and Gregory began their career as writers for “Late Show With David Letterman” before going on to “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Frasier” and “King of the Hill.” The duo also is writing the comedy feature Bronze God for Sony Pictures with Mosaic producing.
