We love New Girl. No matter how quirky/crazy/awkward Zooey Deschanel‘s character Jess gets, we can’t fault her. Even when she’s got a turkey in the dryer. Even when she’s hiding tampons in an apron. Even when she’s singing to herself, again. Though we may sometimes want to jealously strangle her–really, no one should be allowed to look so cute in suspenders–we can’t help but love her.
Elizabeth Meriwether is the reason we love/want to be/want to strangle Jess. Elizabeth is the creator and writer of New Girl. She’s also the screenwriter behind the hit No Strings Attached starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. If you’re not getting the big picture, we’re talking kindofabigdeal. Her success is the kind many screenwriters only dream of, and you get the opportunity to pick her brain.
You have until February 12 to ask Elizabeth your question here on the forums. Ask her about the writing process. Ask her what challenges writing for TV presents. Ask her for Ashton Kutcher’s number (but then give it to us). Head over now!
