In "How I Met Your Mother," Ted Mosby (played by Josh Radnor and voiced by Bob Saget) sits down with his teenage kids to regale them with a tale of a time long before he was a parent, recounting the events that led to him meeting their mother. From MacLaren's Pub to a certain wedding that happens in Farhampton, the stories recounted in the series give the kids (and the viewers) a non-chronological glimpse into the relationship haps and mishaps of Mosby and his friends Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders). In November 2013, CBS ordered the pilot of a female-centric spinoff titled "How I Met Your Dad," with Greta Gerwig cast as the central character.
