Zooey Deschanel Discusses 'New Girl' & Squashes TV Rivalry With Her Sister (VIDEO)

Fox's 'New Girl' is the highest-rated new comedy of the Fall TV season. For the "adorkable" Zooey Deschanel, the transition from movies to TV has been seamless. In an interview with 'Good Day LA (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox), she explained why.

"I think of it as a little movie. It's more like every week we're making a little movie," she said. "Our comedy is all about building on the characters and it's not about jokes, it's about characters being thrown into situations."

Zooey was also asked if she had a rivalry with her sister Emily Deschanel, who stars on Fox's 'Bones.' Unfortunately for the tabloids, the sisters seem to have a nice relationship. "There's no rivalry. She's drama and I'm comedy, so we have it split up amongst the genre lines," Zooey said. She couldn't resist getting one jab in, though. "She's four years older, so she was very protective, and motherly, and bossy."
