Cristin Milioti, Ben Feldman

Want the 411 on A to Z?

NBC's new romantic comedy — you can watch the pilot now here — follows Andrew (Mad Men's Ben Feldman) and Zelda's (How I Met Your Mother's Cristin Milioti) relationship from beginning to end, a la (500) Days of Summer, but if you ask Feldman, the show is more than that.

"This is a relationship story, but it's also a workplace story," Feldman says in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video below. "And I think there are a lot of stories that can come out of a matchmaking service."

Andrew, an idealistic romantic, works at an online dating site with his BFF Stu (Henry Zebrowski), which is where he locks eyes with Zelda, a lawyer who doesn't share Andrew's love-at-first-sight views. "She really tries to keep you at an arm's length," Milioti says. But the two will date for, according to narrator Katey Sagal, eight months, three weeks, five days and one hour.

See what else Feldman and Milioti have to say below — and what Zebrowski thinks needs to not happen to make a good show.

A to Z premieres Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9:30/8:30c on NBC.
