[A to Z] Cristin Milioti & Ben Feldman

Scoot over, Ted!

This pairing will be all over after four weeks when How I Met Your Mother is done. (Well, okay --- give or take a few more days, coz of course..we've got to have those extra days to grieve!)


But come next TV season, we shall be watching her with this guy:

Cristin Milioti, cast the other week as the lead in this new romantic comedy, will be co-starring with Ben Feldman in A to Z. The series is from Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.

Bonus: Read Rashida Jones' essay, "Why Is Everyone Getting Naked? Rashida Jones on the Pornification of Everything" to understand why this chick is praiseworthy!

I don't know about you, but I think they picked the right guy in Ben Feldman (Mad Men, Drop Dead Diva). I already think they look good together! This, after saying on my Facebook yesterday that Ted and Mother on HIMYM are a perfect match, ha! (It must be Milioti! She is so likeable, her charm is infectious!)

Here's a backgrounder on the upcoming series:

A To Z, from Warner Bros Television, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack’s Le Train Train and writer Ben Queen, is a whimsical romantic comedy set in the world of an online dating company that details the “A to Z’s” of a relationship — from meeting to break-up. The ensemble navigates the complicated world of modern dating and poses the question: Is there such a thing as destiny?  -  via Deadline.

Ben Feldman will play Andrew, who is described as a "smart and sarcastic guy's guy" who actually believes in romance and finding "the one" (I can already see Feldman in the role!), while Cristin Milioti's character, Zelda, is the realist in the relationship (perfect!).

They've also added British actress Leonora Crichlow, playing the role of Zelda's roommate. But I wish they had gotten Lucy Punch (Ben and Kate) instead. I think Milioti and her will hit it off better. (But what do I know, I just watch the shows?!)

Among the comedies already taking shape this pilot season, I couldn't be more excited to watch A to Z.
