Comedian, TikTok Star Sarah Cooper Lands Netflix Special

Viral TikTok star Sarah Cooper is coming to Netflix with a new special.

Cooper, who is a best-selling author and comedian before landing her TikTok queen status, will star in Sarah Cooper: Everything's Fine. The variety special will be directed by Russian Doll star/creator Natasha Lyonne. Lyonne will also executive produce with Maya Rudolph and Danielle Renfrew Behrens via their Animal Pictures production company. Cooper and Paula Pell will also executive produce with AGI Entertainment's Chris Burns and Irony Point's Dan Powell. The special will premiere this fall.

The variety special will feature vignettes "dealing with issues of politics, race, gender, class and other light subjects," according to Netflix's official description. "Sarah will be joined by a fantastic array of special guests who will participate in short interviews, sketches and more shenanigans."

Before rebranding herself as a TikTok creator, Cooper wrote books 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings and How to be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings and worked as a writer and correspondent on the Stephen Colbert-produced CBS All Access pilot Old News. Cooper's next project is to write a "modern, comedic take" on a Dale Carnegie title for Audible Originals.
