The 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment project from writer-producer Liz Meriwether (No Strings Attached) has been simply described as an ensemble series about the sexual politics of young men and women.

Along with ABC’s Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23, it’s one of a few scripts that sold during pilot season with attention-getting titles that are expected to change if the show makes it to air.

    So they are going after the transgendered market? Good luck with that.

      It’s Chicks AND D*cks, not Chicks WITH D*cks.

    no no no no no no no. She is better than this.

    • ks

      I know!

    • Dave

      Or maybe the script is really good so it’s right up her alley. She’s done a lot of good projects, I’m sure she wouldn’t make a huge commitment to one that she didn’t think was that good.

      It’s working fine for her Bone’s sister, Emily. Why not? She can continue her singing career (HE and SHE) and if the pilot sucks, maybe she could get attached to the Wonder Woman series. Look at those baby blues!!

      • jmo

        Sorry, She & Him.

      • Ana

        If anyone should play wonderwoman it’s Emily Deschannel. She is the real talent in the family.

  • Sarah

    You spelled her last name incorrectly on the Home Page (Deschenal).

  • hermione

    I think Zooey is so pretty and I love She&Him. Good for her, hope it sees the light of day.

  • steve herrera

    Too bad for Zooey. Shes hot and talented – hate to see her sell out to sitcom wasteland so soon in her career.

  • oh well

    unbearable actress…no range…must be quirky

  • Rebecca

    I will check it out only because I think Zooey is one of the most talented actresses today. And I love She & Him!!

  • ziggy

    The fact that it’s a comedy on Fox means it’ll be short lived. That network really struggles with its comedies (except for Glee, but that’s technically a musical dramdedy)

    • sam

      Sad, but true. I will totally watch though if it actually gets made.

  • The J

    Zoey would make a great Wonder Woman if they cast her for that tv show.

    • Stacie

      Speaking as an Amazonian, she is not strong enough.

  • DeliciousStrawberryFlavoredDeath

    Oh look, more misogynistic garbage masquerading as comedy. How cute. We don’t want another pilot, FOX. We want you to renew the *good* series you already have on air.

  • Annette

    Emily and Zooey together on the same network no way!

  • Mandy

    I will watch anything she is in!

  • James

    Enough sex. I’ll take Brian Regan talking about middle school science fairs and Jim Gaffigan talking about hot pockets every day of the week.

    • James

      I mean, how much sex does NCIS have? I don’t watch, but I’d say its very little. And it dominates television along with the G-rated American Idol. Sex might work with a small audience, but doesn’t last in the long run.

  • Dumbledore Fluffernutter

    Huh? The movie career’s not going so well?

  • RK

    I can’t get by the stupid spelling of her name.

    • jane1982

      Damn her parents for passing on their last name to her!

    • jane1982

      I just realized you’re talking about her first name, and it’s a reference to a J.D. Salinger novel (thought I’d point that out, since you seem to not be very literate).
