CBS to Develop Comedy ‘How to Be Successful Without Hurting a Man’s Feelings’

TikTok star Sarah Cooper is developing a single-camera comedy at CBS inspired by her book “How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings.” The proposed series will follow three women at different stages in their careers at a male-dominated company as they help each other navigate modern gender politics in their careers and in their personal lives.

Cooper is attached to co-write and executive produce the potential comedy, with Cindy Chupack onboard as co-writer, executive producer, and showrunner. Nina Tassler, Denise Di Novi, and Joan Boorstein will executive produce under their PatMa Productions banner. CBS Television Studios, where PatMa is under an overall deal, will produce.

Cooper, who will star in her own Netflix comedy special, rose to fame on TikTok when her lip sync impressions of President Donald Trump went viral. Her first video, “How to Medical,” has been viewed over 20 million times so far. She has since made appearances on “The Ellen Show,” “The Tonight Show,” as well as guest hosting “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
