It's a jam-packed show featuring cardboard cut-outs, crazy [...]

The Our Idiot Brother actress will star as "an unlucky-in-love elementary school teacher who moves away from her former boyfriend and in with three unruly guys," while simultaneously making normal people's hair, face and clothes look like goblin garb. Deschanel has been consistently charming in comedies like Elf and Yes Men, though whether or not New Girl will be the manic pixie dream show we've been waiting for is anybody's guess.
