TVLine.com reports that Zooey Deschanel is in discussions to star in a Fox comedy pilot from writer-producer Liz Meriwether (No Strings Attached). The untitled Meriwether project, originally sold under the title Chicks and Dicks, is only described as an ensemble series about the sexual politics of young men and women.

According to TVLine.com, Deschanel would be playing the character Jessica, “an optimistic but unlucky-in-love elementary school teacher who, after her most recent break-up, moves out of her apartment with her ex and moves in with a trio of juvenile guys.”

Deschanel’s body of work has been varied through the years. Most recently this includes the Oscar-winning movie (500) Days of Summer, a television appearance in Bones (“The Goop on the Girl”), and a short film (Drunk History) and video short (Havin’ a Summah). Later this year Deschanel will appear in the movies My Idiot Brother and Your Highness.
