Radnor plays the lead character, Ted, on hit US TV comedy How I Met Your Mother. He wrote the screenplay and also co-stars with Malin Akerman, Kate Mara, Zoe Kazan, Pablo Schreiber, Tony Hale and Richard Jenkins.

“Josh Radnor has crafted a story that is incredibly funny and poignant at the same time,” said Hara. “We feel honored to bring such a fresh and original voice to the screen.”
