TV's "New Girl" Zooey Deschanel, who plays a young woman looking to find her match in her Fox sitcom, has signed on as a creative consultant for the second season of web series "The Single Life." Deschanel's too-cute Hello Giggles lifestyle site will host new episodes of the web-based show created by DBG - the Digital Broadcasting Group. "The Single Life" tells a digital meet-cute of two singles navigating the wild world of flirting in the age of texting, email, phone calls, dating sites, and the occasional face-to-face conversation. (See a clip from season one below).
The show is winsome, sassy, cute, and deals with vaguely contemporary issues about communication--a perfect match for Hello Giggles. As "The Single Life" was sponsored by Dentyne (as in the chewing gum, which frequently makes a distracting appearance), Hello Giggle marks a welcoming and candy-free new home.
The second season of the show will continue to star Taryn Southern and Jeremy Searle, along with an expanding cast of characters with myriad communication issues. The newly single Deschanel might add just the quirk and publicity this show needs.
