A new comedy series from executive producer and writer Liz Meriwether (No Strings Attached), New Girl features a young ensemble cast that takes a fresh look at modern relationships, in a very comical and girlie light and I think you are just going to love it!
Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel) is an offbeat and “adorkable” woman in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves into a loft with three single guys – they let her because they think she’ll bring around models to their house. Goofy, positive, vulner- able and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn\’t. Although she\’s quirky and somewhat awkward, Jess is comfortable in her own skin. More prone to friendships with women, she\’s not used to hanging with the boys â€“ especially at home. As their relationships progress, this fivesome comes to realize they need each other more than they ever thought they would, and end up forming a charmingly dysfunctional family.
The other key players include: NICK (Jake Johnson) is the most grounded. He had big plans for life, but somewhere along the way, he stopped caring and became a bartender. SCHMIDT (Max Green# eld) is a hustling young professional who fancies himself a modern-day Casanova. The third roommate, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris), is an intensely competitive former athlete who has recently come to the realization that he\’ll never play pro. And of course there’s Jess\’ childhood best friend, CECE (Hannah Simone), a deadpan, somewhat cynical model.
New Girl is sure to gather a substantial cult following, if not for the sharp and clever humour in the show, but for the penetrating charm and quirky character that is Deschanel, but be warned sometimes Jess’ character tries a bit too hard with her nerdiness but I think you will love her and the show as much as me (I’ve seen the first five episodes) … I wonder which roommate Jess will hook up with?
New Girl Premieres tonight on Channel Ten at 8pm&don\’t miss out on the show everyone will be talking about Monday!
