More recently, This Is Us writers Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger wrote a new version that came with a slightly modified title: How I Met Your Father.

20th Century TV has set Alison Bennett (FX's You're the Worst) to write a spinoff from the studio's long-running comedy series How I Met Your Mother.

Titled How I Met Your Father, the spin-off follows three years after 20th Century TV first attempted to stretch out the How I Met Your Mother narrative in a new series. In 2013, a pilot starring Greta Gerwig, Nicholas D'Agosto, Drew Tarver and Andrew Santino was shot for How I Met Your Dad, but the project was not greenlit.

"We're always on the lookout for fresh, new voices, and Alison's work on You're the Worst has been incredible", said 20th TV President of Creative Affairs Jonathan Davis when Bennett's deal was announced. "She is completely original, hilariously amusing and a big, big talent".

The original script was written by HIMYM creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas as well as Emily Spivey.

Although there is no network attached to the show, CBS has expressed interest.

FOX Chairman, Dana Waldon revealed the studio's spin-off strategy this week, sharing it's an idea that has been stewing for quite some time. "If it's the right idea the right execution, we'll take that". She had been earmarked for the job as 20th TV executives felt she might be flawless for it when they sat down with her after signing her into an overall deal. I hear it incorporates some of Bennett's personal experiences.
