New Girl on FOUR

8:00pm – Tuesday, February 7 on FOUR

This week sees the premiere of the highly anticipated Zooey Deschanel comedy series, New Girl, screening on Tuesday, February 7th at 8pm on FOUR.

New Girl stars Deschanel as Jess, a hopeful young woman who moves in with three male roommates after discovering that her boyfriend is cheating on her.

Deschanel says that she is happy to take on a more cheerful role after playing aloof characters in films like 500 Days of Summer and Our Idiot Brother.

“She’s different from me in some ways, there’s a part of myself that really is her: 13-year-old me was very much Jess – optimistic, excited all the time. A lot of these things that Jess is, I feel like are at my core,” Deschanel explains.

“I made a career being cast as smart aleck-type characters, but I’m not sarcastic at all. I’m not ironic. I’m very sincere, generally. So this role played into a part of myself that I hadn’t been using on the screen.”
