What They’re Saying:

  • Pam Fryman: “My only complaint about my time on HIMYM was that it came to an end – I’m so excited to be stepping back into this world I love so much with Carter and Craig.  And I’ve been a fan of Isaac, Elizabeth and Hilary from afar – and am thrilled to now get a front row seat to their talent.  I feel so lucky to be a part of this.”
  • Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger: “We’d heard so many wonderful things about Pam Fryman over the years without ever crossing paths that we started to wonder if she was real.  Turns out, not only is she real, she’s just as tremendously talented and kind as everyone says.  We feel so lucky to have Pam onboard and can’t wait to bring How I Met Your Father to life together.”
  • Carter Bays & Craig Thomas: “Pam Fryman is the kind of talent and human being you wish everyone could get a chance to work with — but then again, you also kinda want her all to yourself. Having Pam as part of this extension of the HIMY-verse, by way of Isaac and Elizabeth, is the perfect combination of both! We couldn't imagine embarking on this next chapter without her."
