Tonight's TV Pick: Friday 6 - Zooey Deschanel In 'New Girl

06/01/2012 12:39 | Updated 07 March 2012

New year, new TV - tonight sees the start of several new series, with some old, some new, some from overseas. Here's our pick:

New Girl - 8.30pm, Channel4

Already a hit in the US, this sounds like the sitcom lovechild of Friends, Will and Grace and, possibly, Big Bang Theory. Zooey Deschanel stars as Jess, zany but heartbroken after a toe-curling break-up. She moves in with three male flatmates, and causes mayhem by plonking herself on the sofa, singing aloud and watching Dirty Dancing on repeat. She's heartbroken, so the last of these, at least, is allowed!
