(TORONTO – September 6, 2011) Citytv brings ‘a-dork-able’ to television this September with one of the most anticipated new comedies of the Fall – New Girl, starring indie sweetheart Zooey Deschanel. With a fresh look at modern day relationships, New Girl follows the story of five, somewhat unlikely, friends who come to realize they need each other more than they ever knew and end up forming one charmingly dysfunctional family.

New Girl premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9pm ET/PT (8pm CT/MT) on Citytv and will air regularly on Tuesdays in this timeslot.

Meet Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel, 500 Days of Summer), an offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys. Goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn't. Enter her new roommates, Nick (Jake Johnson, No Strings Attached) the bartender with the heart of gold , Schmidt (Max Greenfield, Ugly Betty), a hustling young professional who fancies himself a modern-day Casanova, and Winston (Lamorne Morris, Sex Love and Lies), an intensely competitive former athlete who has recently come to the realization that he'll never play pro. Rounding out this group is Jess's childhood best friend, Cece (Hannah Simone), a somewhat cynical model who is as put-together as Jess is awkward. In the pilot episode, Jess also meets Coach (guest star Damon Wayans Jr., Happy Endings), a former high school athlete who works as a personal trainer and is subletting a room. Mix in a whole lot of singing, some cringe-worthy moments, and some good snort laughs and you get New Girl   - a feel-good comedy thatjust keeps on getting better!
 New Girl is just one of the anticipated comedies coming to Citytv’s new Fall lineup, which includes Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings’s 2 Broke Girls, Raising Hope, Suburgatory, and Last Man Standing starring Tim Allen. Citytv also remains Canada’s home to critical and fan-favourites Modern Family, Community, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and How I Met Your Mother.
