Zooey Deschanel’s move into the world of television is now a move into digital television. Her new show, which premieres on Fox on Sept. 20, has already debuted to audiences around the globe. New Girl is now streaming for free on iTunes, the first in television history.
Though there’s a chance of lowering the amount of viewers on the opening night, executives are hoping that the show will gain interest through word of mouth. Fans can review the show on iTunes, providing instant feedback for the episode.
New Girl is about Deschanel’s character moving in with a group of guys. A similar premise was used, somewhat successfully, with My Boys. It also sounds similar to Three’s Company. The show will be available for stream up until the traditional broadcast later this month.
