Any “How I Met Your Mother” fans smarting from the end of that series can rejoice, because Cristin Milioti’s new comedy, “A to Z,” looks to be the happy romance everyone always wanted. Co-starring Ben Feldman (“Mad Men”), the trailer has plenty of humor and romance to go around.
Watch the video here.
Narrated by Katey Sagal (“Sons of Anarchy”), “A to Z” is the story of a couple, Andrew and Zelda. Andrew is a romantic guy who works at an Internet dating site. Zelda is the practical lawyer who has rebelled against her hippie mom and against fate. When they meet, sparks begin to fly in a relationship based on either chance or fate.
The parallels to “How I Met Your Mother” are unavoidable, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing — the older show ran for almost a decade, and Milioti’s arrival was pretty much loved by all viewers. Add in the weirdest of the weird copywriters of “Mad Men,” and this might be just quirky enough to avoid silliness or excess sweetness.
“A to Z” will air Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC starting this fall.
