Date of first pilot and any information from the writers about the concept of the show:
The first Pilot of How I Met Your Mother was aired on September 19th 2005. To create the concept of this show the writers quite simply decided lets write about our friends and the stuff we did in New York. When first creating the characters they based Ted Mosby on Carter Bays and Marshall and Lilly on Craig Thomas and his wife, Rebecca. The rest of the characters were made up to create interesting characters. Originally Rebecca, Thomas’s wife was hesitant on having a character based on her and said she would allow it only if they could get Alyson Hannigan to play the role of the character based on her. Luckily for the two writers Alyson Hannigan was available and was looking to do more comedy work.
The bar that is shown throughout the show a lot is based on a bar in New York that both Carter Bays and Craig Thomas liked and wanted to include in their show. It was called McGee’s but for the show was called MacLaren’s. The name of which they chose for the bar was based upon Carter Bays assistant, Carl MacLaren.
In the end it was just about making a show that would make an audience laugh. They based many things around there own lives, people or places they knew of and worked hard for How I Met Your Mother to air.
