Zooey Deschanel Steals Hearts with New TV Trailer

Last month, Fox aired fan favorite Zooey Deschanel’s trailer for her new, off-beat comedy “The New Girl.”


Coming this fall, Zooey plays a passionate, awkward, nerdy woman named Jessica Day who has recently been dumped without warning in the worst way. To remedy this, she moves in with three men who decide to help her come back to herself. However, it should be noted that this is not a “Prince saves Princess” story. It is vibrant, modern, and all about liberation as a woman in a media-driven country.

“It’s not a musical, but it has the vibrancy of a musical, and my character sings all the time, like out of nowhere,” Zooey says, according to Hollywood Crush. “I feel like there’s a generation of girls that are taught to just be themselves, which is amazing. And this is the first [show] that I’ve come across on TV [that projects that].”

According to The Huffington Post, feminism has always been close to Zooey’s heart. A recent article features a letter 17-year-old Zooey wrote to Vogue magazine about the connotations and expectations their articles may create. “I don’t think any woman should have to feel as if she needs to shove herself into an ‘ideal’ to be beautiful,” she says. “Beauty should be something that is celebrated and something that is enjoyable, not something that people should feel uncomfortable about achieving….As American women, we don’t need discouragement, but inspiration.”
