From Warner Bros Television, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack’s Le Train Train and writer Ben Queen,  A To Z follows the relationship between a young couple, Andrew and Zelda (Milioti), from meeting to breakup.

Milioti is completing HIMYM‘s ninth and final season, playing the pivotal mother character after making her debut on the show in last season’s finale. On the film side, Milioti, a Tony nominee for Once, played the role of Teresa Petrillo in Oscar-nommed The Wolf Of Wall Street. She is repped by Gersh and Authentic.
