EXCLUSIVE: Amy York Rubin (Love, Victor) is set to direct CBS’ comedy pilot based on TikTok star Sarah Cooper’s book How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings, from writer Cindy Chupack and producers Nina Tassler and Denise Di Novi and CBS Studios.
Co-written by Cooper and Chupack, the Untitled Sarah Cooper/Cindy Chupack Project revolves around three women at different stages in their careers at a male-dominated company who help each other navigate modern gender politics in their professional and personal lives.

Her numerous episodic directing credits include SMILF, The Mick, Fresh Off the Boat, Dietland, I’m Sorry, Alone Together, Wrecked, Superstore and Angie Tribeca.
