"A to Z," which will air on NBC, co-stars Ben Feldman ("Mad Men," "The Mindy Project"). It was written and executive-produced by Ben Queen, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.
The romantic comedy is set in the world of an online dating company that details the "A to Z's" of a relationship, from meeting to breakup.
Milioti has performed on Broadway in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, Coram Boy and Once. She recently starred on "How I Met Your Mother." Her film credits include "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "Sleepwalk With Me."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
