The most exciting and most stressful part of any fall premiere season is sifting through all the brand-new pilots, so it helps to get started early if you can. Like right now, even. Fox has just released the pilot for one of its most highly anticipated new shows, New Girl, on iTunes, two whole weeks early. The episode will also hit Hulu and Fox.com well in advance of its official September 20 premiere date.

The half-hour comedy revolves around Jess (Zooey Deschanel at her Zooey Deschanel-iest), who finds herself moving in with three guys in the aftermath of a bad breakup. Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield (Officer Leo from Veronica Mars!), and Damon Wayans, Jr. star in the pilot as her new roommates. (Lamorne Morris will replace Wayans in subsequent episodes; Wayans left New Girl after his adorable but underwatched Happy Endings was unexpectedly picked up for a second season.) Hannah Simone rounds out the cast as Jess’ best friend, who’s street smart and cynical where Jess is naive and endlessly positive. More details after the jump.

While one highly anticipated genre television show will get its chance to shine, another will not. Fox was the first network to announce their upcoming slate of shows and have ordered Alcatraz, the J.J. Abrams produced show starring Sam Neill and Jorge Garcia, to series. Awesome. However Locke & Key, based on the Joe Hill graphic novel starring Nick Stahl and Mirando Otto, was not picked up. Bummer.

In addition, Fox has canceled Peter and David’s favorite new show The Chicago Code as well as Christian Slater’s latest show, Breaking In and Tim Roth’s Lie to Me.

After the jump, read more about those shows as well as some others that Fox could cancel well before their time. Read More »
