In “How I Met Your Father,” Duff stars as Sophie, who is telling her son the story of how she met his father, much like Josh Radnor (and Bob Saget’s) Ted Mosby did in the original series. The story starts in 2021 where Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.
Cast includes Francia Raisa (Grown-ish), Tom Ainsley (Versailles), Tien Tran (Space Force), Daniel Augustin (David Makes Man) and Suraj Sharma (God Friended Me), Josh Peck (Turner & Hooch) and Ashley Reyes ( American Gods). Kim Cattrall will play the future version of Hilary Duff’s character Sophie, who is telling her son the story of how she met his father, much like Josh Radnor (and Bob Saget’s) Ted Mosby did in the original series.
Pam Fryman, who directed all but twelve episodes of How I Met Your Mother, has been tapped to executive produce and direct the pilot episode.
The show is created by This Is Us producers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger. Pam Fryman, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, creators of the original show, will also executive produce. 20th Television is the studio.
