Greta Gerwig to Anchor How I Met Your Dad

at . Comments

Meet the new Ted.

CBS has announced that Greta Gerwig will anchor How I Met Your Dad, the planned How I Met Your Mother spinoff that will follow the same concept as this long-running sitcom… just with gender roles switched around.

Gerwig - a writer/actress who received a Golden Globe nomination for Frances Ha - will portray Sally.

The main character is described as a direction-less young woman who has never really grown up and who has realized she has little in common with her husband of one year.

A divorce is on tap, which leads Sally to confiding in her close circle of friends.

If picked up, How I Met Your Dad will film in New York and be produced by Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
