Writer Hired For How I Met Your Mother Spin-Off

Third time lucky for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ spinoff

Third time lucky for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ spinoff

Deadline announces that the highly anticipated How I Met Your Mother spin-off has landed a scriptwriter.

After these two attempts, 20th is finally confident they've found their winning ingredients and Alison will pen the new series, starting from absolute scratch! Alison Bennet, one of the writers of the acclaimed comedy You're The Worst, is a member of the scripting team of the spinoff, which is called How I Met Your Father. The first, How I Met Your Dad, hailed from HIMYM co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas along with former SNL writer Emily Spivey. Last season they tried again with This Is Us co-executive producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, but due to the schedule and popularity of that show (as well as a promotion to co-showrunners), it didn't work out.

How I Met Your Father is being written on spec at the studio, with no network attached, though CBS brass had stated publicly that they would be interested.

FOX Chairman, Dana Waldon revealed the studio's spin-off strategy this week, sharing it's an idea that has been stewing for quite some time. Walden added, "If it's the right idea the right execution, we'll take that". Deadline reports that the series "incorporates some of Bennett's personal experiences".

The spin-off will take a fresh look at the overall concept of a young ensemble series, building the narrative around a mother's narration of how she met her spouse.
