FOX MOVES IN WITH "NEW GIRL" FOR A FULL-SEASON PICKUP

FOX has ordered an additional 11 episodes of the hit comedy NEW GIRL, bringing the series to a 24-episode season order, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

"We love the charming Zooey Deschanel and the entire cast, we're knocked out with the work that Liz Meriwether and the whole staff is doing and we are really psyched about the upcoming episodes in the pipeline," said Reilly. "It's great that audiences have responded so positively so far and we're confident that even more people will embrace the show - and more comedy on FOX - this season."

NEW GIRL premiered as FOX's highest-rated fall sitcom debut in 10 years. Since it launched, the single-camera comedy has quickly established itself as Tuesday's No. 1 series among Adults 18-49 and this season's No. 1 new series among Adults 18-34, Women 18-34 and Teens.

In next week's all-new episode, "Wedding," airing Tuesday, Oct. 4 (9:01-9:31 PM ET/PT), the guys are invited to a wedding of a mutual friend. NICK (Jake Johnson), fearful he will run into his ex-girlfriend Caroline (guest star Mary Elizabeth Ellis), asks JESS (Deschanel) to be his date. Meanwhile, WINSTON (Lamorne Morris) takes his role as an usher very seriously and gets competitive on the dance floor with a young guest. SCHMIDT (Max Greenfield) not only catches the eye of a beautiful woman (guest star Katie Cassidy), but also his "frenemy" Gretchen (guest star Natasha Lyonne) whom he hooks up with at every wedding reception.

The next two all-new episodes of NEW GIRL air at special times. In "Cece Crashes," airing on a special night on Wednesday, Oct. 12 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT), CECE (Hannah Simone) convinces Jess that Nick likes her more than just as a roommate and Schmidt tries to seal the deal with Cece. In "Naked," airing at a special time at 9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT on Tuesday, Oct. 18, Jess accidentally walks in on a naked Nick, sending his self-confidence to an all-time low - just after an attractive co-worker (guest star Lake Bell) agrees to go out on a date with him.

Among other upcoming guest stars on NEW GIRL is Justin Long ("Live Free & Die Hard," "Going The Distance"), playing the role of a music teacher who catches the eye of Jess.

Created and written by Liz Meriwether ("No Strings Attached"), NEW GIRL follows a young woman (Deschanel) who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys she doesn't know, changing all of their lives in unexpected ways.

NEW GIRL is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Meriwether, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Dave Finkel and Brett Baer are executive producers. Kasdan directed the debut and will continue to direct episodes of the series.
