CBS has officially greenlit the spinoff of How I Met Your Mother after two weeks of negotiation, Deadline reports.
Titled “How I Met Your Dad”, the network has ordered a pilot episode for the offshoot project — which is set to take a female spin on the original show. The show is decribed as a “kindred spirit” of HIMYM, which aims to tell the story from a woman’s POV.
How I Met Your Dad tells a brand new story with new characters and a new voice at its center. Linking the new group of New York friends and the HIMYM gang will be Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lily and Robin’s favorite hangout, MacLaren’s Pub, which also will be featured on the new show.
Creators Carter Bay and Craig Thomas together with Up All Night creator Emily Spivey will serve as the spinoff’s executive producers and writers.
