Interview with Creator/Exec Producer Liz Meriwether from New Girl

Recently, Liz Meriwether, Executive Producer and creator of New Girl, took the time to speak with us about the show. She shed some light on where Jess/Nick are headed, the plans for the season, and the show in general.

Liz Meriwether: Probably marriage by the end of season one—no.

I think both of those characters they’re both coming out of these relationships that didn’t go that well, and I feel like they’re not at the perfect time in their lives to sort of be together. But I think it’s actually more important I think that their friendship kind of blossoms. I just used the word blossom. I don’t think it’s going to be like— I think that that was sort of why we did the episode last week was to kind of address it, but also say it’s not really happening right now.

I think they have great chemistry. Everyone on the cast has great chemistry; I think that’s why the show is working. I think of all the characters they’re the two that kind of I think fit together the best, but I think they have a while to go emotionally before they’re going to be at that place. I think, I don’t know, but who knows.
