Zooey Deschanel Wants to Be the President of Television

Zooey Deschanel is invading your TV and there’s nothing you can do about it. The manic pixie television overlord is set to executive produce a new half hour animated comedy. According to Deadline,

The Queen of Everything is a workplace comedy set in a modern fairytale world. It centers on an evil queen who comes into power and realizes that running a Queendom isn’t easy when you have no people skills and everyone hates you. With the help of her staff, she’ll try to change her ways.

This comes just a few months after news that Deschanel sold two other shows: Freelancers, which is written by Mickey Rapkin who wrote the book Pitch Perfect, and And Lies I Tell My Daughter, which is based on a HelloGiggles column and written by Girls’ Deborah Schoeneman.

Three shows in as many months. A few years ago I would have rolled my eyes at the idea of so much bangs and whimsy on my TV screen. But New Girl has risen to become one of the very best shows on television (Prince agrees! That makes it a fact!), and fully turned me around in my former stance on quirk. Plus, The Queen of Everything sounds kick-ass. So now I’m proud to say I welcome our new supreme leader. I look forward to the day that we have only one network, the ZBC, our televisions are replaced by QuirkBots, and all shows center around pretty dresses and puppies. Bring on the puppies!

Time to learn the rules to our new national sport.

Vivian Kane loves True American because she thinks of her own life as being 50% drinking game, 50% life-size Candy Land.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • She is the least funny thing about New Girl. The animated show sounds autobiographical.

  • Yossarian

    This sounds a lot better than that year Whitney Cummings became the President of television, at least.

    I just dont get it. I appear to be immune to her adorkability.

    It creeps up on you, mate. I thought I was immune to it, and then, halfway through season 2 of New Girl, something happened.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I, for one, welcome our new quirk overlord, and I remind her that as a trusted Pajiba commenter I can be useful in rounding up others to toil in her underground knitting caves.

    Bangs and Whimsy is a good name for a two girl stage show.

    Seth Cohen is in New Girl right now! With long hair and a cardigan. And he has a baby! (Not in a bar.)

    Sorry if that's not exactly on topic. But it's Cohen!

    And apparently it was a sweater, not a cardigan.
