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."
