CBS passes on How I Met Your Mother spin-off
How I Met Your Dad will not be coming to CBS, though another network may snap it up...
Despite the presence of Greta Gerwig and a voiceover from Meg Ryan in the pilot, proposed How I Met Your Mother spin-off, How I Met Your Dad (or surely, Father, for us pedants) will not be coming to CBS.
The network chose not to pick up the pilot, which was to centre on Gerwig's character Sally and her circuitous route to finding 'the one' with support from a natty group of New York peers, in the style of its parent show.
There's a chance that another home will be found for the sitcom if other networks are willing to take a gamble where CBS wouldn't.
