'How I Met Your Mother' Producer-Director Joins New CBS Comedy Deadline
Pamela Fryman, who spent nine seasons as director and executive producer on CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother,” is joining a new CBS comedy series in the same roles, reports Deadline.com.
The show is “The McCarthys,” with Fryman on tap to direct eight episodes of the program’s initial 12-episode order, the story reports.
The project is about the gay son of a sports-obsessed Irish Catholic family in Boston. His biggest fault in the eyes of the family isn’t his sexual orientation but his wish to cut down on his time with them, the report notes.
