Zooey Deschanel is in talks to star in a new sitcom

Pin it

Quintessential manic-pixie-dream-girl, Zooey Deschanel is in talks with the Fox network to star in a new sitcom. It's called Chicks and Dicks, which is just a ballsier version of her band name, She and Him.

Right now the show is being vaguely described as an ensemble comedy about the sexual politics and exploits of a young group of friends (a totally original concept, right?). The project is being helmed by writer-producer Liz Merriwether, the force behind the illustrious Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman rom-com sex-fest, No Strings Attached.

While the details are scant, we're betting there'll be a Ben Gibbard and M. Ward love triangle sub-plot by the third episode.
