The How I Met Your Mother spinoff is quickly gaining ground! Greta Gerwig has been cast as the lead in the buzzed about pilot How I Met Your Dad — essentially, she’ll be the female version of Josh Radnor’s character, Ted, on the hit CBS show that’s coming to an end this March.

Greta’s character is a married, free-spirited woman in her late 20’s who hasn’t quite grown up yet. When she realizes that she and her husband are too different to make things work, she gets help from some friends to find the man that’ll eventually be the father of her children.

The creative duo behind How I Met Your Mother helped write the pilot, which is expected to be picked up by CBS for next fall.
