New Sitcom on the Way From the How I Met Your Mother Guys


And to think, if it hadn't been for the ratings boost that came with stunt-casting Miss Britney Spears, How I Met Your Mother probably would've been canceled a few seasons ago. But now, show creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are riding high and rolling in dough. The duo just inked a new three-year deal with 20th Century Fox and will be working on a new sitcom for CBS that's set in Pittsburgh and revolves around a young couple and their group of friends. Bays described it thusly: "The new show is similar tonally to HIMYM and investigates the next chapter, the next stage of adulthood." [HR]
