Zooey Deschanel is in negotiations to star in Fox’s untitled comedy pilot from writer-producer Liz Meriwether.
The pilot, originally titled Chicks and Dicks, is described as a young ensemble comedy about the sexual politics of men and women. It centers on Jessica, the role Deschanel is eyeing, an optimistic but unlucky-in-love elementary school teacher who, after her most recent break-up, moves out of her apartment with her ex and moves in with a trio of juvenile guys.
The show comes from 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment.
Weekly Zooey on my TV? Sign me up. I don’t care how bad it is (and judging by the former title, there’s a good chance it’s a stinker), I think the world always needs more Zooey.
