THE NEW GIRL

 PTC Summary:

New Girl

(Fox/Sitcom)
9:00 p.m. (ET) Tuesday/Friday

Production Companies: Meriwether Productions, Chernin Entertainment, 20th Century Fox Television
Producers: Liz Meriwether, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Dave Finkel, Brett Baer
Creator: Liz Meriwether

Now in its fourth season, New Girl continues to follow the kooky antics of Jess and her four male roommates, with particular emphasis on their hapless romantic relationships. This season, Nick and Jess negotiate the awkward minefield of their post-breakup friendship. Meanwhile, Schmidt’s obsession with Cece is rekindled now that she is once again single.

Sexual content is frequent and gratuitous, and has included references to “fisting,” Jess dating a man with a “micropenis,” and Jess’ friends critiquing women’s breasts in great detail and at great length. Language includes frequent uses of “douche-bag” and “dick” along with other vulgarities. Violence is not a problem for the program.

New Girl is not recommended for viewers under age 18.
