CBS confirms it’s not picking up “How I Met Your Dad”
The “How I Met Your Mother” spinoff, starring Greta Gerwig, can be shopped to other networks after CBS’ boss Nina Tassler said “things on the pilot didn’t work out." Tassler said she tried to get producers to redo the pilot, but couldn’t get them to resolve the spinoff’s issues. “I’m heartsick,” she said. “It wasn’t what they wanted to do.”
