Time Warner Cable Debuts TV Spot Featuring “New Girl” Star, Zooey Deschanel

In partnership with Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX), Time Warner Cable is celebrating the third season of the hit comedy series NEW GIRL, with the debut of a national TV spot. NEW GIRL airs Tuesdays (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The 30-second spot, featuring the show’s lead character, JESS (Zooey Deschanel), is designed to show how Time Warner Cable customers can watch the latest NEW GIRL episodes with Primetime On Demand and past episodes streaming online. The TV spot will run across Time Warner Cable’s footprint.

“We’re proud to partner with the shows our customers love, like NEW GIRL,” said Jeffrey A. Hirsch, Time Warner Cable’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing/Sales Officer, Residential Services. We could not have selected a more perfect person than Zooey Deschanel to remind our customers they don’t have to ‘get a little crazy’ about missing an episode of the popular show.”

In addition, next month, Time Warner Cable will host a national Facebook sweepstakes for a chance to win a two-night trip for two to Los Angeles and a $5,000 shopping spree, accompanied by a top Hollywood stylist. Customers can “Like” Time Warner Cable on Facebook (www.facebook.com/twc) or follow @TWC on Twitter for updates and more information.

Last season, NEW GIRL was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, including Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical (Zooey Deschanel) and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Max Greenfield). The series was nominated in its freshman year for five Emmy Awards, including Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Deschanel and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Greenfield. The series was nominated for a Television Critics Association Award in the category of Outstanding New Program as well as a Critics' Choice Television Award in the category of Best Comedy Series. Deschanel won the Television Critics Association Award for Best Actress, Comedy. In its first season, NEW GIRL received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical and a Writers Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Television – New Series.
