Cobie Smulders May Play Maria Hill In The S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series

Why not? As Clark Gregg will be the lead of the show she can be the sort of boss who appears once in a while because Samuel L. Jackson is not a TV actor and just too expensive.

HIMYM is going to have it's last season apparently next year (until they decide to prolong it again) after that she would be fully free to increase from recurring guest star to full starring role in Shield (going immediately from one show to the next while doing the character in movies is an actor's dream when it comes to employment guarantee).

There have been instances in shows where characters got reduced screen time at their own request (barring health issues and pregnancies) and i guess at the end of the show, especially with the hinted at events in Mother, she could get the occasional week off from it to film scenes for Shield.
