Fryman will direct the pilot and executive produce the rest of the series aptly named How I Met Your Father. Aside from her work on How I Met Your Mother, Fryman's extensive resume includes work on other TV comedies like Frasier, Friends, Just Shoot Me, King of Queens, and Two and a Half Men.
"My only complaint about my time on HIMYM was that it came to an end - I'm so excited to be stepping back into this world I love so much with Carter and Craig. And I've been a fan of Isaac, Elizabeth and Hilary from afar - and am thrilled to now get a front row seat to their talent. I feel so lucky to be a part of this," Fryman said in a statement.
The spin-off was picked up for a 10-episode by streaming service Hulu back in April, and since its announcement, actors Chris Lowell and Hilary Duff have joined the cast. TV veterans and Love, Simon writers Isaac Apertaker and Elizabeth Berger created the series.
"We'd heard so many wonderful things about Pam Fryman over the years without ever crossing paths that we started to wonder if she was real. Turns out, not only is she real, she's just as tremendously talented and kind as everyone says. We feel so lucky to have Pam onboard and can't wait to bring HOW I MET YOUR FATHER to life together," Aptaker and Berger said in a statement about Fryman joining the show.
How I Met Your Father writers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are also excited about the addition of Fryman saying in a statement:
"Pam Fryman is the kind of talent and human being you wish everyone could get a chance to work with -- but then again, you also kinda want her all to yourself. Having Pam as part of this extension of the HIMY-verse, by way of Isaac and Elizabeth, is the perfect combination of both! We couldn't imagine embarking on this next chapter without her."
According to Deadline, the show begins when "Sophie (Hilary Duff) is telling her son the story of how she met his father: a story that catapults us back to the year 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."
Lowell's character Jesse, a friend of Sophie's, is described as "smart, a bit of an edge and cynical about love. He's an aspiring musician who works as an Uber driver to make ends meet and lives with his best friend Tom."
It is still unknown when the series will begin to stream.
