The plot of How I Met Your Dad will revolve around Sally (Greta Gerwig) and her telling of how she came to know her children's father. Among the various protagonists in Sally's story are Frank (Nick D'Agosto), her potential suitor, and Danny (Andrew Santino), her older brother.
The former character is an IT specialist who helps out with the fashion blog written by Sally's best friend Juliet (Krysta Rodriguez).

Sally's brother Danny, meanwhile, is a lawyer who lives with Todd (Drew Tarver).
