Sarah Cooper's CBS comedy pilot casts Natalie Morales, Amy Landecker and Alice Lee

The comedy pilot based on social media sensation Cooper's book How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings has added Morales, Landecker and Lee as 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. "Morales will play Joanna, a conflict-averse, people-pleasing middle manager at the small tech company Lucent Muse, whose new hire, Elyse (Lee), challenges her 'go along to get along' career philosophy," per Deadline. "She lives with her boyfriend of two years, a sweet, loyal guy who might be too sweet and loyal for her. Landecker will portray Dale, the only woman on the leadership team at Lucent Muse. She lives by the philosophy 'What Would Sheryl Sandberg Do' and believes that the way to get ahead in a male-dominated workplace is to work twice as hard and be one of the boys. As the main breadwinner in her marriage, she spends much of her time as many successful women do, in couple’s therapy. Lee’s Elyse is a recent hire at Lucent Muse. She’s thrilled to be there and to share all of her ideas, however her inability to bite her tongue and just be an observer gets her into trouble with the boys’ club at work, led by a trio of men called The Bryans." Cooper wrote the untitled comedy pilot with former Sex and the City writer Cindy Chupack.
