Alyson Hanigan: what happened after HIMYM
Hannigan is still working despite not being on screen or TV every day.
Admittedly, Hannigan’s first big post-HIMYM gig didn’t work too well. Hannigan had originally intended to take a break from acting, but changed her mind when she was offered the opportunity to star in an upcoming comedy pilot by Ben Affleck & Matt Damon.
It was a pilot for the sitcom More Time With Family. Description by Hannigan as an opportunity “too good to pass up”, though, sadly, the idea was never picked up and the series failed to make it past the pilot.
Hannigan quietly added several new projects to the CV in the years that followed. Having made cameo appearances in various TV series while racking up a number of TV movie appearances, Hannigan’s credits include a feature in Disney’s Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., as well as a short stint on American Dad.
