Former Being Human star Meaghan Rath has been cast as the female lead in another series project, Fox comedy Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Surviving Life, from 20th Century Fox TV and Gail Berman’s the Jackal Group. Written by Jay Lacopo, Cooper Barrett’s Guide is a nostalgic celebration of the mistakes and misadventures we all wind up going through in the years after college and before we settle down. It centers on 26-year-old Cooper Barrett who, during a particularly disastrous experience, decides it’s time somebody let the under 20 crowd know about the unexpected challenges of post- college life. Rath, repped by The Kohner Agency and Hess Entertainment, will play Kelly Bishop, a beautiful physical therapist who lives across the hall from Cooper. Rath starred as Sally Malik on Syfy’s Being Human for its entire four-season run. She will next be seen as a recurring in ABC’s Secrets & Lies and Fox’s New Girl and previously had recurring roles on Cinemax’s Banshee and Kingdom on DirecTV.
