'How I Met Your Mother's Upcoming Spinoff Gets a Rewrite

'How I Met Your Mother's Upcoming Spinoff Gets a Rewrite

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.

Three years after the popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother ended, it will get a spinoff, Deadline reported.

How I Met Your Mother is one of those shows we all fell in love with, and all felt heartbroken over when it came to an end. But the duo's busy schedule on This Is Us, where they were elevated to executive producers/co-showrunners, did not allow them to focus on How I Met Your Father, which was to be developed internally and written on spec at the studio. The studio produced a pilot for How I Met Your Dad, penned by original series creators Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, Emily Spivey, which was later put on the back-burner.

Bennett had been marked for consideration earlier this year when 20th Century TV's took on the spin-off idea once more.

"We're always on the lookout for fresh, new voices, and Alison's work on You're the Worst has been incredible", said 20th TV President of Creative Affairs Jonathan Davis when Bennett's deal was announced. "She is completely original, hilariously amusing and a big, big talent".

Although there is no network attached to the show, CBS has expressed interest.

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. And now Bennett, whose credits also include The Awesomes and Idiotsitter, is expected to take the project in a different direction, though it still will revolve around a mother looking back at how she met her spouse. In this case, it will be a mother telling her story, with much of Bennett's own personal experiences added to the plot.
