"New Girl" (TV show) is an ensemble comedy series on FOX that takes a modern look at friendship and romance as it follows the exploits of a smart, spirited and single young woman, her male roommates and her beautiful best friend.

As the series' third season came to a close, Jess (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Zooey Deschanel) and NICK (Jake Johnson) ended their romance, when they discovered that their differences outweighed their love for each other. Schmidt (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Max Greenfield) decided to pursue his on-again-off-again relationship with Cece (Hannah Simone), despite her fling with a younger man. Meanwhile, Winston (Lamorne Morris) passed his entrance exam on his way to becoming a police officer, and Coach (Damon Wayans, Jr.) is adjusting to life as a grade school gym teacher.  
With the loftmates all single in the fourth season, the pursuit of love drives them all to extremes. In the season premiere, the gang attends the last wedding of the summer and Jess sets her sights on the best man (guest star Reid Scott, "Veep") only to find competition from the hottest scientist in the room (guest star Jessica Biel, "Total Recall," "New Year's Eve"). In other storylines, Schmidt tutors Jess on the not-so-fine-art of dating via mobile apps; Winston desperately wants his fellow police academy cadets to give him a nickname; Jess' dad (guest star Rob Reiner) returns with a new girlfriend, who happen to be Jess's high school nemesis (recurring guest star Kaitlin Olson, "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"); Nick and Schmidt must learn to share a room together; and Jess dates a man whose shortcomings below the belt fall way under the microscope.
Premiering in 2011, "New Girl" was an instant hit, as viewers were introduced to the free-spirited Jess who, after a bad break-up, moved into a downtown Los Angeles loft occupied by three single guys. The series has been nominated for five Emmy Awards, including Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Deschanel and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Greenfield. The series also has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, including Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical (Deschanel) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Greenfield). In its debut season, "New Girl" earned a Writers Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Television – New Series.

Meriwether, Brett Baer, Dave Finkel, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope are executive producers, with Meriwether, Baer and Finkel serving as co-showrunners/writers and Kasdan directing multiple episodes of the series.
