Gail Berman is back in the comedy biz at the Fox network, landing a pilot order for “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.”

Berman is exec producing the single-camera laffer through her Jackal Group and 20th Century Fox TV. Jay Lacopo wrote the script about the “mistakes and misadventures” that people experience in the years after college and before settling down.

Lacopo fielded another comedy script at Fox this year, a project produced by Brett Ratner about a womanizer who helps a divorced woman to find the man of her dreams.

Last year Berman set up a wide-ranging production pact with Fox that calls for her to produce for a range of the studio’s networks. She was head of programming for the network from 2000-2005, and before that she headed the Regency TV shingle that birthed Fox’s hit domestic comedy “Malcolm in the Middle.”
