TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at Fox’s new comedy series The Guide To Surviving Life.
The Guide To Surviving Life is a single camera comedy that explores what we all go through on our way to figuring out what life is all about. Cooper Barrett (Jack Cutmore-Scott) still doesn’t have the job he wants; he’s accidently fallen in love with his across-the-hall neighbor, Kelly Bishop (Meaghan Rath); one of his roommates, Neal (Charlie Saxton), just can’t seem to dump his bodybuilder girlfriend; his other roommate, Barry (James Earl), is a “loveable jackass” who can’t stop getting into trouble; and his 40-year-old-brother, Josh (Justin Bartha), a married father of two, is constantly popping in to come hang with the fellas.
The one thing they do have is each other. As Cooper struggles to survive each of life’s many challenges – a night in jail, an inappropriate text he never should have sent, an ill-advised household pet – he will guide us through the often-messy, always-hilarious ordeal, so that our lives don’t have to be nearly the entertaining disaster that Cooper’s is turning out to be. 20th Century Fox Television and the Jack Group are producing with series creator Jay Lacopo, Gail Berman, Bill Callahan and James Griffiths serving as executive producers.
