Liza Lapira is breathing new life into a Fox project…
The 33-year-old part-Spanish American actress has been cast as a regular on Fox’s midseason comedy series The Guide to Surviving Life.
The young ensemble comedy, created by Jay Lacopo, centers on a group of friends living together for the first time and celebrates the mistakes and misadventures of post-college life.
Lapira will portray 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.
Lapira’s feature credits include Crazy Stupid Love and Fast & Furious.
The Guide To Surviving Life will start production in August for a midseason launch behind New Girl.
