Actress Greta Gerwig arrives at Lynn Hirschberg celebrates W's It Girls with Lancome and Dom Perignon at A.O.C. on January 11, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
How I Met Your Dad has its protagonist: Frances Hastar Greta Gerwig.
Gerwig will play Sally in the comedy pilot from the How I Met Your Mother creators, which will tell a similar kind of story from a female point of view. Mother creatorsCarter Bays and Craig Thomas will be executive producers, and Gerwig will serve as a producer and is expected to write.
If CBS picks it up as a series, Dad would likely shoot in New York. The pilot, which will feature new characters, will be produced in Los Angeles, where Mother, which is set in New York, is filmed.
In Dad, Sally is described as "a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she's going in life." She feels she has nothing in common with her husband of less than a year and a break-up is inevitable, but she has the support of friends and family as she moves forward.
In addition to Ha, for which Gerwig received a Golden Globe nomination, the actress has appeared in such films as Arthur and Lola Versus. She recently wrapped shooting on The Humbling, which also stars Al Pacino.
Mother tells the story of Ted (Josh Radnor) and how he met the mother of his children, with an older Ted (Bob Saget) providing the voice-over as he speaks to his children. It will end its run on March 31 after nine seasons.
