Description:

New Girl, the new smash hit situation comedy on Fox, has already been recognized with two Golden Globe nominations for Best Television Series and Best Television Actress. The plot of this screwball comedy revolves around three male roommates who are searching for a fourth. The applicant who gets the vacant room is a flighty and unique girl played by Zooey Deschanel.

Zooey Deschanel has gained notoriety in the film and television community for her expert portrayal of the classic Manic Pixie Dream Girl. This character type refers to a girl who lives in her own world and captivates the men in her life with her innocent, dreamy detachment. Jess, the character played by Deschanel, is definitely living in a dream world. Her social awkwardness and confusion about different social expectations make for several humorous moments of exasperation with her male roommates.

Her three roommates, Nick, Schmidt and Winston, are played by three great actors. Each of these male characters as a distinctive personality which, when combined, create endless funny moments. Nick is a ne'er-do-well who struggles constantly with his own poor self-esteem. The romantic tension between he and Jess is probably what is moving the series forward and attracting so many viewers. However, the comedic antics of Schmidt may also be accomplishing this feat. Schmidt is a cocky, self-absorbed, woman-crazy man who is trying desperately to hide his sensitive interior. His obsession with Jess's best friend, the gorgeous CeCe, is fuel enough for hundreds of laughs throughout the series.

The real appeal of New Girl is in the balance between tenderhearted, caring moments and outlandish comical situations. Jess's innocence and propensity for trouble create three heroic saviors out of her formerly selfish roommates. The male characters in New Girl are constantly creating that "aww" moment from viewers as they continue to comfort and care for the easily manipulated Jess.

The series began with an 11-episode run on FOX. After the first two episodes had aired to a surprisingly large audience, FOX ordered another 13 episodes for the show. The 24-episode first season was acclaimed by a wide variety of audience members. On April 9, 2012, FOX renewed New Girl for a second season.

Deschanel, the lead actress in this series, has said that she had no hesitation in accepting the role. She believes the role was created for her, and it seems that her fans and fans of the show agree.
