Frances Ha star Greta Gerwig has been cast as the lead in CBS’ new show How I Met Your Dad, its spinoff from the wildly successful How I Met Your Mother, which will air its series finale March 31, 2014.

HIMYD will center around Sally (Gerwig), “a female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea where she is going in life.” However, unlike Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) in HIMYM, Sally is already married. But the marriage is crumbling and Sally will look to her friends and family to help her decide her future.

Greta will also serve as a producer on the new show and if the pilot is picked up, she will write for the series as well. The 30-year old Greenberg actress just completed filming on The Humbling with Al Pacino.
