I teach a headline writing class down at the Learning Annex if anyone wants to come down.
Anyway. Zooey Deschanel — best known for being super cute, super awesome, and super married — is going to be in a series about a (very nice) promiscuous woman, Ms. Pamela De Barre. Y’see, Pamela wrote a tell-all book about being a groupie in the ’60s and ’70s and it’s being made into a PILOT that will probably get PICKED UP because if you’re the kind of guy that wears scarves indoors and has even a passing knowledge of The Smiths you’ll probably get, I don’t know, about half a million hard-ons by the time you finish this sentence: Zooey Deschanel will be playing a promiscuous lady.
Look, I know this sounds all “gossip rag” — with me saying “oh boy, readers!” and the like — but I’d imagine this is a huge turn in Zooey’s ouerve, if you will. She’s gone from playing squeaky clean and quirky to playing, um, squeaky clean and quirky to, uhh — let’s not forget 500 Days Of Summer where she plays, um, a super clean and quirky total bitch who fucks over the other guy in the movie whose name I forget because he reminds me far too much of myself, uh. Man that movie. I swear to God, were they following me around? I digress.
As is with most things in Hollywood, the pilot will probably get picked up and be made into a series that I’d imagine wouldn’t be shooting until Summer (OMG SUMMER). So there we have it.
