Zooey Deschanel show “New Girl” getting early tease

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Zooey Deschanel, star of “Our Idiot Brother” and the excellent “500 Days (of Summer),” is trying her luck with situational comedy, and if you are curious how she’ll do, FOX wants to give fans an early look.

Deschanel’s show, “New Girl,” will be made available on multiple formats including Hulu, iTunes ahead of the comedy’s Sept. 20 premiere, THR reports. The episode will be available on iTunes starting Sept. 6 before moving to the other avenues on Sept. 13.

In the series, the actress plays Jess, an “offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys,” according to the network.

The show comes from Liz Meriwether of “No Strings Attached,” which means it has the potential to walk an edgy path. Deschanel’s being asked to play “goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault,” which we know she can do. Now we’ll see if screenwriters can hand her enough jokes. Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson, Hannah Simone and Damon Wayans Jr. co-star in the show, which will be paired with “Glee” this season on FOX.
