Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger are writing the series. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are among its producers.

"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 Thursday.

Set in the future, the show follows Sophie (Duff) as she tells her son the story of how she met his dad.

The similarly themed How I Met Your Mother ran nine seasons from 2005 to 2014. It starred Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan.
