Fox has renewed New Girl for a fifth season – ensuring that it will reach the 100 episode milestone. Follow the jump for details.
A failed suicide attempt leads to a reunion of old friends in About Alex, a quietly intense little film about life, love and the false intimacy created by modern telecommunications.
In FOX’s new comedy NEW GIRL, Zooey Deschanel is reason enough to watch even if she weren’t absolutely adorable, endearing and hilarious. It is premiering Tuesdays at 9:00 pm and facing some difficult competition being up against Biggest Loser, NCIS, and the Dancing With the Stars results show. But at least NEW GIRL offers viewers a chance to get away from reality shows and procedurals, therefore I certainly hope it can grab a good chunk of audience.
Zooey plays Jess Day, a young woman who, after discovering her long-term boyfriend is cheating on her, moves into a loft apartment with three male roommates — Nick [Jake Johnson], the prickly bartender who is still pining after his ex; Schmidt [Max Greenfield], the womanizer who works in an office full of ladies; and Coach [Damon Wayans, Jr.], an intense personal trainer. The guys try to help Jess get back on her feet and back into the dating world. Overall, I found NEW GIRL to be delightful, fresh, funny, and yes, adorable.
