'How I Met Your Mother' Spin-Off Enlists Writer From FX's 'You're the Worst'

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.

It's time to find out how the Mother met the Father.

Three years after 20th Century TV attempted to launch the show's spinoff with a CBS pilot, the studio is giving it another go, according to Deadline. Though the studio took another chance at it last broadcast season with This Is Us co-executive producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, things didn't quite shake out, as Aptaker and Berger's responsibilities on the drama series became more serious. The CBS sitcom's original creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are attached to executive produce the spin-off, though their involvement will be limited.

"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", he said.

How I Met Your Father is will be developed internally and written on spec at 20th Century TV, with no network attached. "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". She had been earmarked for the job as 20th TV executives felt she might be flawless for it when they sat down with her after signing her into an overall deal.
