'How I Met Your Mother' Spin-Off 'How I Met Your Dad' Ordered To Series By CBS

May 8 2014, 6:01pm CDT | by

Not too long ago, CBS announced plans to create a new, gender reversed companion to hit series How I Met Your Mother. The new series, How I Met Your Dad, would be a female-centric version of the story featuring an all new cast, bar and would not tie into How I Met Your Mother in any capacity.

Today, CBS has announced they will be moving forward with the series in the fall of 2014.

Meg Ryan will supply the voice over for the series being executive produced by Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, as well as Up All Night creator Emily Spivey. The series will star Greta Gerwig, Drew Tarver, Nicholas D’Agosto and Andrew Santino.

This particular order was one of the only sure fire pick-ups going on at CBS who is currently rumored to be picking up only two dramas and two comedies this year following the renewal of most of the network’s already running dramas and comedies. Currently, the only other new show confirmed for next fall is the direct-to-series ordered Vince Gilligan/David Shore drama, Battle Creek.

Other pilots in contention at CBS include: Cuz-Bros, Gaffigan, Good Session, The McCarthys, The Mistake, More Time With Family, The Odd Couple, Save The Date, Madame Secretary, Only Human, Red Zone, Scorpion, The Untitled Kevin Williamson Project and Elmore, Tarlor, Ben Cavell and John Cusak Project.

The network is expected to announce its full fall line-up a week from today in New York City.
