Got anything on the “careers episode” coming up on New Girl? –Kas
In the Fox com’s next outing, airing Jan. 7, Jess has only 20 minutes to decide if she wants to change careers and accept a new job, prompting the gang to flashback to how they all landed in their current professions. I leave it to you to figure out how this exclusive photo of Winston à la Rodman figures in:
Welcome back to Fox, bitch!
The O.C.‘s Adam Brody is reuniting with his former network via a guest stint on New Girl, TVLine has learned.
In an episode slated to shoot next week (and air in early 2014), Brody will play Berkley, a long-ago ex-boyfriend of Jess’ (Zooey Deschanel) who’s now a married stay-at-home dad. He’s open with his feelings and prides himself on having mastered the art of being an ex, which is probably why he and Jess (allegedly) remained the best of friends after their breakup.
Brody’s recent TV credits have included FX’s The League and Showtime’s House of Lies.
#3.10 – “Thanksgiving III” – The gang’s survival skills are tested when Nick and Jess take them camping for Thanksgiving. Coach and Schmidt battle it out over who is the best woodsman, while Cece and Winston bond over their mutual distaste for the outdoors.
#3.09 – “Werewolf” – Jess is tasked with keeping a frantic Schmidt occupied inside the loft, as Coach (guest star Damon Wayans, Jr.) and Cece go out on a first date. Meanwhile, Nick and Winston meet a frisky bus driver (guest star Jessica Chaffin) as they search for a missing Ferguson.
#3.08 – “Menus” – An overabundance of Chinese food take-out menus left at the loft’s front door is the catalyst for an interconnected series of adventures for Jess and the guys.
New Girl has given Coach an extension.
Damon Wayans Jr., whose four-episode comeback arc kicked off Tuesday, has closed a deal to stick around for the remainder of the Fox’s comedy’s third season, TVLine has learned.
Technically speaking, Wayans will continue to receive the Heather Locklear treatment and be billed as a “special guest star.”
As previously reported, the Happy Endings alum is currently developing a new comedy project with Fox to be directed by Modern Family co-executive producer Jason Winer and written by Reed Agnew and Eli Jorne, the showrunners from FX’s canine comedy Wilfred. Titled Man/Child, the potential series is about a pair of single dads who become roommates and struggle to find the balance between being responsible parents and debaucherous bachelors.
#3.07 – “Coach” – A newly single Coach (guest star Damon Wayans, Jr., “Happy Endings) returns to the loft, and wants to pick up exactly where he left off when he moved out. Meanwhile Jess and Cece have a girls’ night out, during which they meet a handsome stranger (guest star Taye Diggs).
#3.06 – “Keaton” – In an effort to reconnect with Cece, Jess throws a Halloween party at the loft. In an effort to change Schmidt’s sullen behavior, the loftmates resort to “catfishing” him by pretending to be his childhood idol – actor Michael Keaton. Then, Schmidt makes a decision that could change the loft forever.
