20th Century TV has tapped You're the Worst's Allison Bennett to pen the upcoming series based on the studio's long-running comedy that wrapped in 2014.

Deadline announces that the highly anticipated How I Met Your Mother spin-off has landed a scriptwriter.

According to Deadline, Bennett will pen How I Met Your Father as part of her overall deal with the 20th Century FOX TV, written on spec and with no studio now attached. But the duo's busy schedule on This Is Us, where they were elevated to executive producers/co-showrunners, did not allow them to focus on How I Met Your Father, which was to be developed internally and written on spec at the studio.

Bennett had been marked for consideration earlier this year when 20th Century TV's took on the spin-off idea once more. Deadline reports that a writer has been hired for the project, and it's Alison Bennett, best known for her work on FXX's You're The Worst.

FOX Chairman, Dana Waldon revealed the studio's spin-off strategy this week, sharing it's an idea that has been stewing for quite some time. She served as a co-producer on the most recent season and an executive story editor on the Hulu animated comedy The Awesomes before that. I hear it incorporates some of Bennett's personal experiences.

"She is completely original, hilariously amusing and a big, big talent", he said.

The spin-off will take a fresh look at the overall concept of a young ensemble series, building the narrative around a mother's narration of how she met her spouse.
