HIMYD is described as a “kindred spirit” of HIMYM — only this time telling the story of a relationship from the point of view of Sally (to be played by actress/writer/indie darling Greta Gerwig), a “female Peter Pan” who is thinking of calling it quits with her husband of a year, Gavin.

Rodriguez will play Juliet, a sexy, flamboyant, energetic, party-girl who runs a successful fashion blog and is delighted to learn her BFF Sally is ending things with the terminally boring Gavin.
