Frances Ha star Greta Gerwig has been announced as the lead in the spin-off to the hit series, although there's been no word as yet on a concrete air date. Eliza Dushku has, unfortunately, had a bad run with TV series. Dollhouse was cancelled after two seasons, whilst Tru Calling was a bit of a mess. Considering that How I Met Your Dad was initially met with sceptisim by some, the show needs all the help it can get.
