Milioti will play an alternately serious and hilarious lawyer
Cristin Milioti, who was thrust into the spotlight when she was introduced as the titular mystery mom in CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother” last year, has found a new gig for when that series wraps up.
“A to Z” follows the relationship between a young couple, Andrew and Zelda, from meeting to breakup. Miloti will play Zelda, a realist and attorney at a small, public-advocacy law firm. Alternately serious and hilarious, Zelda loves being a grown-up and doesn’t understand why anyone over 20 would go see an animated movie or eat ice cream sundaes. Destiny and fate are not in her vocabulary; she believes she controls her own destiny.
Jones and McCormack are executive producing, as is Ben Queen (“Cars 2″), who wrote the pilot.
