Zooey Deschanel officially signs with FOX sitcom pilot

Would you watch a TV series just for Zooey Deschanel?

We would. So we're excited to hear that the "500 Days of Summer" star could be a regular on the tube as soon as fall. Variety reports the actress/singer has officially signed on as the lead in FOX's Liz Meriwether comedy pilot, previously titled "Chicks & Dicks."

The project follows a woman (Deschanel) who moves in with three uncouth men. A single camera comedy, it will explore the politics between the sexes.

And should the pilot go to series, Zooey will join sister and "Bones" star Emily as a member of the FOX family. She previously guest-starred with her sibling on 2009, playing her bizarre cousin.
