Once alum and current How I Met Your Mother star Cristin Milioti isn't going to disappear from our TV sets anytime soon! According to TVLine.com, the Tony nominee has been cast as the co-lead in the comedy pilot A to Z, from actors/writers/exec producers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. NBC picked up the pilot, which navigates the complicated world of modern dating, last month.
Written by Ben Queen (Cars 2), A to Z is a single-cam comedy set in the world of an online dating company that details the “A to Zs” of a relationship. The series follows a relationship between a young couple, Andrew and Zelda, from meeting to breakup, over the course of a season. Milioti will star as Zelda, "a lawyer who loves being a grown-up and doesn’t understand why anyone over 20 would go see an animated movie or eat ice cream sundaes." The role of Andrew has not yet been cast.
In addition to her starring role as Girl in the Tony-winning musical Once, Milioti also appeared on Broadway in The Lieutenant of Inishmore and Coram Boy. Her off-Broadway credits include Some Americans Abroad, Crooked, The Little Foxes, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and The Devil’s Disciple. On screen she has been seen in The Wolf of Wall Street, Sleepwalk With Me, The Sopranos, 30 Rock, The Good Wife, Nurse Jackie and Year of the Carnivore.
