'HIMYM' producers to create sitcom for Fox

After a fierce bidding war, Fox nabbed the next comedy from the How I Met Your Mother producers — a single camera laugher about three siblings who reconnect after their dad dies.

Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, along with Chris Harris, will exec produce a put pilot called The Goodwin Games for fall 2012 consideration. A put pilot comes with severe financial penalties if Fox doesn’t air it, which all but assures its pickup for next season.

And yes, Fox still has many shows yet to debut this season (tonight’s Terra Nova, for one!) but it, like the other broadcast nets, are already focused on next fall’s lineup.

    Will be interested to see who will star. I hope Bays and Thomas will wrap up HIMYM nicely though and not let this diminish HIMYM’s quality anymore.

      CBS renewed HIMYM a while ago for only two seasons, so it looks like next season will be its last, since it seems like they have been wrapping up the storylines. It’s become one of my favorite shows on tv over the years and the producers have done a great job with so I’m excited to see what their next show will have in store for us!

        Yes, I was thinking they will end it soon. It’s also one of my favorite shows still (even though Ted drives me nuts). I hope it gets a deserving ending!

        Also, as long as Katie Holmes is not the mother, I can tolerate anything.

    But you only see the first two siblings, with each episode ending with a tease about when the third sibling is finally going to show up at the house…… And that’s “How I Reunited the Three Goodwin Siblings!”

    I think I’m the only person in the world who wishes HIMYM would go on longer
