June 25 (UPI) -- How I Met Your Mother director Pam Fryman has signed on to direct and executive produce the pilot episode of Hulu's How I Met Your Father.
Fryman will also serve as an executive producer on the 10-episode comedy starring Hilary Duff.
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.
Duff, 33, is known for her roles in Younger, Lizzie McGuire, Agent Cody Banks and Cheaper By the Dozen.
