As stated in a press release Friday afternoon, CBS announced that they have given a pilot production commitment to the 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff, actually titled, 'How I Met Your Father.'
This could very well be the epitome of laziness that has come out of Hollywood — and that is saying something. As the critically acclaimed and cult-followed show How I Met Your Mother draws to a close with it's ninth and final season, show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have already gotten their new idea in motion. Their new idea of course being their decade-long running idea rehashed for the female perspective, brilliantly titled How I Met Your Father.
The pilot episode has already been written by Bay and Thomas, with help from Emily Spivey (Saturday Night Live writer, creator of NBC's Up All Night), and as per a press release, it was made official that CBS green lit production for a pilot. Now it is important to note that this does not guarantee the show will be nine years long, or that it will even be put on air. (But with the names that are behind it, it's certainly a good chance.)
This is sort of exciting for some people, very funny to most people, and pretty sad to just about all people, but would you ever tune in to see the possible new hit show, How I Met Your Father? (Oh, and yes, it already has it's own IMDb page.)
