Created by Elizabeth Meriwether, New Girl revolves around Jess Day, a school teacher who, after a bad break-up, needs to find a new place to live. An online search leads her to a great loft and three single guys she’s never met before. But Jess moves in, and through her upbeat personality, unique sense of self and the unlikely support of her new roommates, she learns to move on. The comedy series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone.
In the show’s fifth season, Jess realizes she would rather spend time with her date’s (guest star Taran Killam) parents (guest stars Henry Winkler and Julie Hagerty) than him; Cece’s mother (guest star Anna George) arrives in town for her daughter’s engagement party; and Nick and Schmidt try to run the bar and turn the loft into an Airbnb when Jess is on jury duty. Additional guest stars include Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Rob Riggle (The League), John Cho (Sleepy Hollow) and Nasim Pedrad (Scream Queens).
