She also told SiriusXM's Jess Cagle about her children's book, 'My Little Brave Girl.'
Hilary Duff stopped by Jess Cagle's SiriusXM show on Thursday morning (May 6) to talk about her How I Met Your Mother spinoff, her new children's book and why the Lizzie McGuire revamp fell apart.
“I don't know how much I'm able to say and the script," Duff told The Jess Cagle Show's co-host Julia Cunningham about the sequel, How I Met Your Father, a 10-episode Hulu series from This Is Us and Love showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger. "I mean, the script was so good. I literally called and I was like, ‘Please, yes, please have them pick me.’ So I, you know, it's, I don't want to give it all away and the script is, is definitely being changed a little bit. But it does tie in and, you know, hopefully we'll have some fun guest appearances from the original cast."
She said the third attempt at rebooting the beloved CBS series that ran from 2005 to 2014 and starred Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders and Neil Patrick Harris will definitely take place in New York, even though it's being filmed in Los Angeles. "There's great characters and I'm going to get to have another on-set family, and another TV family," said the former Lizzie McGuire star. "And there's so much opportunity for like, love stories with this show because it's Sophie and then, three dudes. ... It's going down that whole rabbit hole of like, well, which one was, was the one and which, who was the father."
