EW has confirmed that HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and former Up All Night EP Emily Spivey have pitched a female-led half-hour comedy called How I Met Your Father. Like HIMYM, it would feature a group of friends, be set in New York and chronicle the main character’s quest to meet her future husband. There’s a chance the proposed project might also feature HIMYM icon MacLaren’s Pub.
If the idea is given the greenlight — talks are extremely preliminary — the new slate of characters would likely be introduced in the reports.
