How I Met Your Dad is described as a “kindred spirit” of How I Met Your Mother — only this time telling the story of a relationship from the point of view of Sally (played by Greta Gerwig), a “female Peter Pan” who is thinking of calling it quits with her husband of a year, Gavin.

Tarver will play Todd, Sally’s best friend and brother-in-law, our sister site Deadline reports. Described as “warm” and “outgoing,” Todd is more than happy to have Sally move into the apartment he shares with her Type A brother Danny, who is openly unhappy about having her as a third roommate.
