How I Met Your Mother Meets… Katie Holmes!

The project, which spurred a multi-network bidding war, follows the lives of three siblings who reconnect after their father’s death.

In other Fox-related development news, the network has ordered a grisly-sounding pilot from Vampire Diaries‘ Kevin Williamson. According to our sister site Deadline.com, the untitled drama is being billed as a thriller about a diabolical mass murderer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers.
