Liza Lapira has been cast as a regular on Fox’s midseason comedy series The Guide To Surviving Life. Created by Jay Lacopo and executive produced by Gail Berman, the young ensemble comedy revolves around a group of friends living together for the first time and celebrates the mistakes and misadventures of post-college life. Lapira will play Leslie Barrett, the wife of Josh Barrett (Justin Bartha). Lapira replaces Maureen Sebastian who played the role in the pilot. While Sebastian comes from drama background, Lapira has comedy series experience with co-starring roles on ABC’s Don’t Trust The B— and Super Fun Night as well as CBS’ comedic drama Battle Creek. At Fox, she previously co-starred on comedy Traffic Life and drama Dollhouse. The network also cast her as a lead in its comedy pilot The Perfect Stanleys this past season.
The Guide To Surviving Life will start production in August for a midseason launch behind New Girl.
Lapira, whose feature credits include Crazy Stupid Love and Fast & Furious, is repped by Paradigm and attorney Gregg Gellman.
