New Girl Gets First Full Season Pick-Up
Fox has embraced the New Girl on their Tuesday block. The network has ordered 11 additional episodes of the hit comedy — making New Girl the first freshman series to receive a full season pick-up.
"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 Kevin Reilly, Fox's president of entertainment. "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."
