Zooey Deschanel in Talks to Star in Fox's <em>Chicks and Dicks</em>

Deadline reports the She half of She & Him/(500) Days of Summer star Zooey Deschanel is in talks to star in a new Fox sitcom originally called Chicks and Dicks, though it is currently untitled.

The show revolves around the “sexual politics of men and women,” and Deschanel wants the role of an elementary school teacher, Jessica, who’s unlucky with love and moves in with three immature guys.

Deschanel was rumored to star in and executive-produce an HBO show based on Pamela Des Barres’ memoir I’m With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie, but that didn’t pan out. She has also appeared on Showtime’s Weeds and in one episode of Bones, which stars her sister, Emily.
