‘Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life’ (April 3): Cooper’s Ex-Girlfriend Resurfaces

“How to Survive Your Crazy Ex” (04/03/16) – Cooper’s ex-girlfriend (guest star Lyndon Smith) resurfaces in a way that results in some serious public humiliation for him. Neal tries to intervene, but things quickly spiral out of control.

Meanwhile, Kelly meets a new guy (guest star Parker Young) who shares her love of competition and Josh tries his hardest to keep Leslie out of group hangouts in an all-new episode of “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” airing Sunday, April 3 (7:30-8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Lyndon Smith as Lena and Parker Young as Shane.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a friend who has made all the mistakes in life there are to make, and then tells you exactly where he went wrong, so you don’t have to? “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” is a new comedy that explores what we all go through on our way to figuring out what life is all about.

Cooper Barrett (Jack Cutmore-Scott, “Kingsman: The Secret Service”) still doesn’t have the job he wants; he’s accidently fallen in love with his across-the-hall neighbor, Kelly Bishop (Meaghan Rath, “Being Human”); one of his roommates, Neal (Charlie Saxton, “Betas,” “Hung”), just can’t seem to dump his bodybuilder girlfriend; his other roommate, Barry (James Earl, “Ground Floor,” “Glee”), is a “loveable jackass” who can’t stop getting into trouble; and his 40-year-old-brother, Josh (Justin Bartha, “The New Normal,” “The Hangover” franchise) is constantly popping in to hang with the fellas and get some peace from his wife, Leslie (Liza Lapira), and their two kids. 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.

“Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” produced by 20th Century Fox Television and The Jackal Group. The series was written by Jay Lacopo and executive-produced by Lacopo, Gail Berman, Bill Callahan and James Griffiths. The pilot was directed by Griffiths.
