<i>New Girl</i>: Zooey Deschanel Talks Music, Motivation and Manic Pixie Dream Girls

One of the fall's most anticipated comedies, Fox's New Girl (which premieres tomorrow night at 9 PM) casts "adorkable" (their word, not ours) Zooey Deschanel as newly single gal, Jess, who recovers from a bad break-up by moving in with a trio of eccentric male roommates. Deschanel, whose previous TV experience includes appearances on Frasier, American Dad! and Weeds, took a moment last week to speak with the press about her first foray into small-screen stardom. Here, she talks about being one of those infernal "manic pixie dream girl," her character's musical ambitions and what she loves the most about her new alter ego.
