Cooper Barrett's Guide: Poster for Fox Comedy Switches Things (Ahem) 'Up'

If Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Surviving Life has a chapter on “maturity,” it’s probably not one of the longer ones (“Title of Amy’s sex tape!”), as evidenced by this poster for the new Fox comedy.

Check it out, then read on for more:Cooper-Barrett-Fox-Comedy

Premiering in February 2016, Cooper Barrett’s Guide stars Jack Cutmore-Scott (Kingsman: The Secret Service) in the title role, playing a sad sack who 1) doesn’t have the job he wants, 2) is hopelessly in love with his neighbor (Being Human‘s Meaghan Rath), 3) has a pair of irrepressible roommates (Betas‘ Charlie Saxton and Ground Floor‘s James Earl), and 4) indulges his 40-year-old brother (The New Normal‘s Justin Bartha) when he pops  in to get peace from the wife (Super Fun Night‘s Liza Lapira) and kids.

As Cooper struggles to survive life’s challenges – a night in jail, a text he should not have sent, an ill-advised household pet – he guides viewers through each ordeal, so that our lives don’t turn out to be the (entertaining!) disaster that Cooper’s is.

    Downright horrible because of its title. :-(

  2. Ken says:

    That is not Liza Lampira in the video above. She may be in the series, but that is not her pregnant on the phone as Justin Bartha’s wife.

    I can’t help thinking this isn’t the right fit for FOX. This seems like the sort of show that FXX or Comedy Central would have.

  4. Phil says:

    Got to see this pilot early, and it remembers that key component of great TV – it’s very entertaining. The time jumping is a little exhausting, but I look forward to seeing these characters in follow-up episodes.
    And that poster is hilarious.

    I’m gonna watch it, but pretend it’s titled “Ned’s Declassified Life Survival Guide.” Hope that’s cool with everyone.

    Nope, I think it’ll be another cancellation for Fox. What is going on over there?
