Alyson Hannigan is ready for her new comedic closeup, Ms. Olivia Pope.
The How I Met Your Mother star is set to make her return to TV with a new ABC comedy pilot titled Man of the House, produced by Scandal star Kerry Washington, and we’re jazzed.
Man of the House tells the story of a social worker named Jessie (Hannigan) who’s blindsided when her husband asks for a divorce. With no other options, Jessie, her football-star son and her preteen daughter move in with her also-divorced sister Charli and her daughter. What could go wrong? Turns out, a lot.
No word yet on when the pilot will air, but this just might be how we met our favorite new show.
