Singer-actress Zooey Deschanel has written and recorded the theme song New Girl, the FOX series on which she will star this Fall.
In New Girl, the singer/actress plays a newly single woman who moves in with three guys eager to meet her friends. Deschanel's character sings whenever she is overwhelmed emotionally.
The show is going to be incredibly musical, and that's no shock, since Deschanel is also one half of the She & Him indie rock duo. "It's just a part of how she expresses herself," Deschanel told the Television Critics' Association Friday in Los Angeles about her character. "They're songlets -- they come spontaneously" to the character. The songs she sings are written into the script."
Deschanel says her singing will have a wide stylistic range, from jazz standards and a hefty Ethel Merman vocal style to heavy metal and "a ghoulish voice." This is definitely on our list of shows we need to watch this coming season.
New Girl premieres September 20th, so all you musical types and Deschanel fans should mark your calendars.
