How I Met Your Mother's mother, Cristin Milioti, will join NBC pilot A to Z, a Rashida Jones–produced comedy about the entirety of a relationship: "from meeting to breakup." Guess she won't really be able to use her sexy baby voice or ukelele — according to a press release, she'll play Zelda, "a lawyer at a small, public-advocacy law firm [who] loves being a grown-up and doesn’t understand why anyone over 20 would go see an animated movie or eat ice cream sundaes."
