Deschanel stars in the sitcom New Girl on the Fox network. She plays Jessica Day, a quirky but passionate school teacher who moves to a loft with three guys after being dumped by her boyfriend. Co-starring Jake Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans, Jr., and Hannah Simone.
It’s easy to say [the show is about] a girl and three guys, but obviously with any plot, you can boil it down into something that sounds generic. I have a lot of guy friends, and they help me in different ways. But it’s less about her, as these men have their issues.
