Zooey Deschanel from 500 Days of Summer is to star in this fresh new Fox show which secures a distinctive intriguing perspective on contemporary relationships. Liz Meriwether, screenwriter of the Romantic comedy No Strings Attached, brings us this new, juicy comedy with a charming plot.
New Girl tells the story of Jess Day (Deschanel), an eccentric woman in her late 20’s, who goes to live with three bachelors after a rotten break-up. While Mrs. Day can be appropriately described as a quirky, naïve girl she is nonetheless happy in her skin. To further add on to and display this quirkiness at Mrs. Day’s core is her tendency to make friendships with women as opposed to men.
A viewer can only imagine the fabulous comic potential the latter can ignite for the series.
With Mrs. Day living with three male roomies Nick (Jake Johnson No Strings Attached), Schmidt (Max Greenfield, Ugly Betty) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr., The Underground) her dorky nature is guaranteed to grace each episode with a comedic flair (Fox). Among the three bachelors, Nick can be described as the most realistic one. Described as a sharp and witty young man, he owns a strong sense of decoding people and their mannerisms.
Schimdt, on the other hand, acts as the series’ young, perhaps overly confident, guy who “fancies himself a modern-day Casanova” (Fox). He’s one of those in the male population who tend to possess earnest intentions and yet he’s a complete social climber determined to remain aligned with what’s chic. Rounding out the set of three single guys, the one who feels most at home in the gym, is fittingly named Coach.
With experience as a high school athlete in his past, Coach is a persistent guy “with a take-it-or-leave-it” approach to relationships (Fox). However, while his outlook on dating appears bold his most authentic demeanor around women is an undeniable shyness.
CeCe played by Hannah Simone (Beautiful People), plays Jess’ best gal pal in the series and picks up the pieces that Jess’ youthful essence often let fall. Cece, a professional model, is a poker-faced character that provides Mrs. Day with relationship advice- ultimately proving to be a confidant that balances out when coupled with Jess’ peculiarities.
With that practicality, Mrs. Day definitely can remain grounded but not without a supply of comical graceless situations along the way.
Jess, Cece and the three bachelors that make their way into the girl’s lives are a diverse group that both compliment each other and will make for a likable, atypical family.
Ultimately, New Girl is establishing that with an eclectic cast and a matchless plotline, it is set to be a new force in comedy.
New Girl premieres Tuesday September 20th, 9/8c this fall.
