Max Greenfield talks crossing over from 'New Girl' to 'The Mindy Project' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Max Greenfield broke out as New Girl‘s endearing d-bag Schmidt, but Tuesday night he’ll pull double duty as he takes on a swaggering, be-scared guest role on The Mindy Project.

Coincidentally, both new episodes deal with the fallout of two break-ups. In New Girl‘s “Big News,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) have to come clean that they’re just friends again, resulting in a “devastated” Schmidt. As for Mindy, “Think Like a Peter” follows Dr. L (Mindy Kaling) under the tutelage of  her frat bro colleague Peter (Adam Pally), who tries to get the rom-com obsessive into the male mindset and maybe even help her score with Lee (Greenfield’s “first-grade teacher who is up to no good”).

“It was a good threesome,” Greenfield teases of his chemistry with Kaling and Pally. “It was fun to do something totally different. I’m sure there’s some Schmidt[-like] stuff in there, but I really don’t [think] there’s a moment when you go, ‘Oh, that’s the same guy from New Girl.’”

Fox renews 'Mindy Project,' 'The Following,' more

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and New Girl have all been renewed for new seasons, Fox announced Friday.

The network’s pickup of freshman comedy Brooklyn comes as no surprise, considering the Andy Samberg vehicle took a top prize at the Golden Globes in January, and both Mindy and New Girl, going into their third and fourth seasons respectively, were considered safe bets for renewal.

Fox has also renewed The Following, which will return for a third season.

“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley in a joint statement. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”

The news comes a little over a month after Fox announced the renewal of Bones for a tenth season. Sleepy Hollow and Glee are also set to return, with the latter going into its sixth and final season.

The fates of drama Almost Human and comedies Dads, Raising Hope, and Enlisted remain undecided. For more on their odds, check out EW’s annual TV Death Watch.

'New Girl': Adam Brody on playing one of Jess' 'Exes' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Fresh off the steam of New Girl‘s most-watched ever post-Super Bowl episode featuring Prince, the show is back with another high-profile guest star. In addition to the always welcome return of Nick’s former live-in love Caroline (Mary Elizabeth Ellis), “Exes” also introduces Jess’ old beau Berkley (Adam Brody).

In an exclusive First Look at tonight’s installment, the O.G. O.C. geek crush talks about his hippie-dippie stay-at-home dad character, who at first appears to have remained besties with Jess (watch out for granolicious inside jokes!). But, as much as Brody himself had an easy time filming with stars Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson, the end of the clip shows a touch of friction that implies things don’t quite go according to the adorkable plan. Check it out below, then begin your rampant speculation! READ FULL STORY

After the pigskin comes the purple velvet.

As we previously reported, Prince is hosting a shindig Sunday night, and the New Girl gang is (mostly) invited!

'New Girl' sued for copyright infringement

Fox’s New Girl is being accused of plagiarism, EW has confirmed.

According to court papers filed Jan. 16, Stephanie Counts and Shari Gold are suing New Girl creator Elizabeth Meriwether, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, Peter Chernin, Jacob Kasdan, and Twenty-First Century Fox for copyright infringement.

In the lawsuit, which EW has obtained, Counts and Gold allege that prior to New Girl, they had a script for a pilot for their show hopeful Square One, which was met with favorable interest in the industry, but they weren’t able to make a deal. They worked on this from 2006-2011. Once New Girl aired, Counts and Gold hired a lawyer. Fox allegedly made the writers a $10,000 settlement offer, but they refused the money. (UPDATE: A rep for New Girl tells EW the network and studio have no comment.) READ FULL STORY

'New Girl': Hannah Simone and Lamorne Morris talk Prince's guest spot, Winston's new job -- VIDEO

There’s a lot of fun on the horizon for the gang on New Girl, and EW has the scoop from stars Hannah Simone and Lamorne Morris.

In the video below, the duo teases an “awesome” guest spot from musical icon Prince, which will take place in the episode that airs after the Super Bowl, and talk about what’s coming up in the professional lives of their characters. As you’ll recall, Cece recently took up a job at Nick’s bar and if she’s half as good at that as Simone is at bouncing a balloon — which both actors did as part of EW’s Ultimate Balloon Challenge — she’s in good shape. (Spoiler Alert: Simone reveals Cece will likely continue to underwhelm at the bar.) Meanwhile, Morris teases a new career path for Winston that he detects we’re going to enjoy.

See Zooey Deschanel as Steve's dream girl on 'American Dad' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

A certain New Girl is about to become Steve’s dream girl, as Zooey Deschanel lends her voice and quirky sensibilities to this week’s installment of American Dad. In an episode that sends up a few indie film conventions, Steve and his pals take Snot on a cross-country road trip to attend the funeral of his father. Steve, however, gets sidetracked when he meets an indie-cool chick (Deschanel) who believes that mustaches are t-shirts for lips. Click on the video below to watch Steve try to cozy up to his wonder woman in a hot tub. READ FULL STORY

'New Girl': Coach and Cece, it's a date! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

After the messy breakup between Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone), it was only a matter of time before one of them dipped a toe back into the dating pool. But who would have imagined Cece would be the first? (Especially considering she didn’t touch a comb for weeks after getting cheated on by the loft’s own douchebag supreme — and she’s a model!) More to the point, who would have guessed Cece’s return to the dating world would be with another loftmate?

Well, whether you hoped/guessed/nightmare-prophesied this possibility or not, Cece is indeed going out on a date with Coach in tonight’s New Girl. It’s worth pointing out, though, that the episode’s title, “Longest Night Ever,” doesn’t bode well for the pair — it also seems likely to be referring to Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) attempt to keep Schmidt occupied during the possible hook-up between her bestie and Coach.

As for the date itself, check out this exclusive First Look featurette about what goes down, with commentary from Simone, Wayans, Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris — whose Winston is also looking for love on this particular “Night” (you’ll have to watch the ep for more on that development). Click through to find out where Coach takes Cece for their romantic rendezvous… and how Schmidt reacts to the news that his ex might be moving on with his buddy.
