New Girl
« on: 16 May, 2011., 18:31:52 CEST »


NEW GIRL (working title) is a new single-camera comedy from Liz Meriwether (“No Strings Attached”) that features a young ensemble cast and takes a fresh and outrageous look at modern male/female relationships. JESS DAY (Zooey Deschanel, “(500) Days of Summer”) is an offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys. Goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn’t. Although she’s dorky and awkward, she’s comfortable in her own skin. More prone to friendships with women, she’s not used to hanging with the boys – especially at home. Of the three male roommates, NICK (Jake Johnson, “No Strings Attached”) is the most grounded. He had big plans for life, but somewhere along the way, he stopped caring and became a bartender. Usually the smartest guy in the room, he has an uncanny knack for reading people and uses humor to deflect everyone and everything. SCHMIDT (Max Greenfield, “Ugly Betty”) is a hustling young professional who fancies himself a modern-day Casanova. Though his heart is usually in the right place, he’s always scheming ways to climb the social ladder and is driven by an immature and almost obsessive urge to be on “the scene.” Viewing Jess as a gateway into the elusive female mind, as well as a personal project, Schmidt encourages the guys to bring Jess into the apartment. The third roommate, COACH (Damon Wayans Jr., “The Underground”), is a former high school athlete who currently makes his living as a personal trainer. Set in his ways and with a take-it-or-leave-it attitude to dating, Coach is most comfortable when he’s in the gym. Though he’ll never admit it, Coach’s macho athletic exterior is actually a cover for his shyness around women, and he struggles to translate his personal confidence into conversation, preferring to speak in sports metaphors – or not at all. Rounding out this group is Jess’ childhood best friend, CECE (Hannah Simone, “Beautiful People”), a deadpan, somewhat cynical model who blossomed after outgrowing her promiscuous adolescent years. She has the street smarts Jess lacks and spends a lot of time doling out no-nonsense relationship advice that only a professional model could give. She and Jess balance each other well and accept each other despite their faults, making Cece the perfect complement to Jess. As their relationships progress, the five friends come to realize they need each other more than they ever thought they would and end up forming a charmingly dysfunctional family.

Fox's highly anticipated Zooey Deschanel comedy New Girl has finally solved its Damon Wayans, Jr. problem.

Newcomer Lamorne Morris has joined the cast as Winston, a former basketball player who returns to town — and to the apartment that bears his name on the lease. Winston kicks out Wayans' character, Coach, who had been subletting the room.

Morris is stepping in to fill the void left by Wayans, who had to drop out of New Girl because he was already starring in ABC's Happy Endings, which received a surprise second season renewal.

Executive producer Liz Meriwether admits that she had cast Wayans under the assumption (held by most) that Happy Endings was about to receive a not-so-happy ending. "There was a definite moment of, I don't want to say 'panic,' but panic," she says. "Damon was such a great addition the cast."

Wayans plays a huge role in the New Girl pilot and has been front and center in all of the show's early promos. That's partly why Meriwether and 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the show, opted to keep the pilot as is. To take out Wayans, "we would end up having to reshoot about 80 percent of it," Meriwether says.

Meriwether and the studio didn't want to risk ruining what has been considered one of the year's top pilots. "It felt thematically that it made sense to have people move in and out of the apartment," she says. "In your 20s, things are transient anyway. You're surfing Craigslist for a new roommate. It kind of worked to have Damon be subletting and then move out. And that freed us up to focus on moving forward, as opposed to going back and creating everything. That would have been a tough way to start."

In episode two of New Girl, viewers will meet Winston, a mediocre basketball player who had been playing professionally for a team in Croatia. "He was never going to go to the pros here," Meriwether says. "So he gets an offer to play basketball for the Croatia National Basketball League, and then runs into shady circumstances. When he comes back to the loft, he realizes he has to give up his dream and start over."

That mirrors the state of affairs for Deschanel's character, Jess, who moves in with three guys (including Coach) in the pilot after her boyfriend cheats on her. "All of these characters are kind of damaged a little bit and trying to figure out their lives," Meriwether adds.

Wayans will only be seen in flashbacks in Episode Two, as Jess gets emotional about Coach's departure — even though they've only known each other a few days.

"We're planning a montage of all her moments with Coach," Meriwether says. "We can only use clips from the pilot, so you'll see a lot from that. It will be this great dramatic montage of a lot of shots of her just standing next to him. The guys won't see it as that big of a deal at all — Coach was subletting, and his sublet is over. But to her, it's another sign that everyone is leaving her."

Meriwether and the show's producers started casting to fill Wayans' exit soon after learning that Happy Endings was taking him back. Morris had been auditioning for the past month when he got the greenlight on Thursday night. "Every time he came in, he blew us away more and more," Meriwether says. "I love his rhythms. He's a young Eddie Murphy. He has this kind of great manic comedic energy. And he has amazing improv skills. I love that about our cast, all of our actors can think on their feet."

Morris' background includes hosting specials for BET, as well as the Cartoon Network game show Brain Rush.

Production on New Girl starts August 8. The show premieres Tuesday, September 20 at 9/8c, behind Glee.

The Los Angeles Times' Mary McNamara says, "Jess is the keystone of the show and Deschanel, with her impossibly blue eyes peeking out from behind her horn rims and up from under unkempt bangs, fills her with the charming and willful childishness usually reserved for characters played by male comedians — Will Ferrell in Elf, Adam Sandler in, well, just about anything. Deschanel's essential sexiness is impossible to eradicate, but she uses all its elements — the eyes, that voice, those curves — to fine comedic effect, playing dorky the way Judy Holliday, Carole Lombard or even Lucille Ball played dumb."

"Which is to say, with the occasional sensual growl and knowing twinkle in her eye, letting everyone know that Jess is in on the joke. Like the men around her, she has a level of self-awareness that belies her often clumsy actions," she adds.


To je ono što mi se užasno sviđa u seriji :D Jer nije problem stvorit clueless kretenskog lika koji nije svjestan svojih mana :D

Jer je Damon Wayans Jr., glumac, ugovorom vezan na Happy Endings :D Početkom godine su ga pustili da odradi pilot kao rezervni posao jer je izgledalo da Happy Endings nema šanse - nisu ga stavili ni na raspored tada - ali je eto, spletom okolnosti, serija dobila drugu sezonu i on je morao otići iz New Girl :D

Evo jedan zanimljivi članak :D

For the first time in a decade, Fox can say that it has a live-action half-hour comedy hit on its hands with New Girl, which blew past all ratings projections to open with a big 4.8/12 in adults 18-49 (10.3 million viewers overall). New Girl‘s great ratings performance caught everyone by surprise, including Fox’s head of marketing Joe Earley. While he is elated today, just a couple of days ago he was very worried as the network’s risky promo stint of putting the New Girl pilot on iTunes, VOD, hotels, airplanes and Hulu for 2 weeks ahead of the premiere had started to get out of hand. Fox had made the deal to raise awareness for the series starring Zooey Deschanel as the show’s intent to view levels had been consistently high but its awareness numbers were still lagging. In exchange for getting the pilot for free streaming, the distributors committed to promote the show across their platforms, including a prominent placement on the homepage of iTunes, which was taking a pre-premiere window on a show for the first time. After the first week, things looked good — awareness for New Girl was up by 6%, something Earley said could not have been achieved by the network’s standard marketing campaign alone. (Free press for the sneak peek experiment might have helped, too.) After awareness went up, the buzz metrics also started jumping, and chatter on the show increased 400%. “People were talking peer-to-peer, and it was overwhelmingly positive,” Earley said. “So we figured any viewing lost (by the promotional streaming) would be replaced by people who didn’t intend to watch.”

But then an alarming trend developed. “The numbers started climbing and climbing at a much higher rate,” Earley said. “When we hit a million views, I started to become nervous, when we hit 2 million, I started to break out in a cold sweat. Over 2 million viewers had consumed this show before it even premiered!” Fox couldn’t stop the promotion as they had a commitment to their distribution partners but began thinking of ways to slow down the rate of consumption of the pilot, like pulling back on promotion. “But there was no slowing it down, people were enjoying it,” Earley said, noting that the vast majority of viewers watched the whole pilot, something rarely seen in free previews of new series. What’s more, the promotional streaming window didn’t end until the day before the New Girl premiere, further chipping away at potential repeat viewing. So Earley and the rest of the Fox brass came to accept the fact that the promo streaming stint would probably depress viewership for the opener but hopefully boost the series’ long-term prospects by prompting many people who sampled the show to put it on their DVR season pass. With the massive pre-premiere viewing and Fox’s (not so good) track record of launching live-action comedies, the network was prepared for a premiere 18-49 rating in the high 2s and hoping for one in the neighborhood of last fall’s Raising Hope, which launched to a 3.1, followed by a slow build. The absolute best-case scenario was if New Girl held on to its Glee lead-in. Instead, the rookie’s demo rating shot up by 20% from Glee. How did that happen?

1. The show was good, so word-of-mouth and critical response was great. But the same was true for ABC’s Modern Family 2 years ago, and New Girl eclipsed even that premiere by 12%. What New Girl had extra was:

2. A big, likable star. Fox made Deschanel the center of its promotional push, which ranged from traditional billboards and Web banners to talking video ads in shopping malls to Deschanel filming special promos to air during syndicated comedies on Fox stations. Additionally, Fox tapped in to Deschanel’s large fan base and Internet following, including promoting the show on her popular blog, HelloGiggles. Earley believes that the ratings spike from Glee to New Girl can be explained with Deschanel “bringing in new people” to the network who don’t necessarily watch TV or Fox. Additionally, New Girl had:

3. Great repeatability, something that helped offset some of the pre-premiere online viewing as some of the people who had already seen the pilot watched it again last night.

All in all, we will probably never know what exactly led to New Girl’s extraordinary opening number. It was “some good alchemy happening,” Earley called it, noting that, while the free downloading experiment ultimately worked, he would do it differently next time, starting the promotional window a week earlier and ending it a week before the series premiere. Still, was there a magic bullet? “Yes,” Earley said. “It was Zooey Deschanel.”

Druga epizoda prilično loša, da ne kažem katastrofa. Ako je ovo jedan od najgledanijih i najrazvikanijih sitcom pilota, bojim se pogledati ostale. Zooey je u jednom intervjuu rekla da je lik kojeg glumi u ovoj seriji isti ona kad je imala 13 godina. Sve bi to bilo ok da ona ne tumači lik ODRASLE ŽENE, ovako samo ispada mentally challenged.I mogla bi prestati s tim izigravanjem na adorkability  i cuteness, ima li ona uopće uloga gdje nije takva? A officera Lea aka Schmidta da ne komentiram  :rigo:

FOX has scuttled its plans to air an original episode of "New Girl" following "The X Factor" this coming Wednesday, October 12.

A repeat - "Kryptonite" from September 27 - will instead air on said night at 9:30/8:30c following a 90-minute "X Factor." "Cece Crashes," the episode previously set to air on October 12, will be rescheduled for a later date.

Last month, in order to combat upcoming MLB playoff disruptions, FOX booked original episodes of "Raising Hope" and "New Girl" on Wednesday, October 5 and October 12, respectively, with additional encores on Thursday, October 6 and October 13.

The network subsequently dropped the aforementioned encores in favor of keeping "X Factor" at two-hours on Thursday nights.
