Zooey Deschanel has signed on as the lead for Fox's untitled comedy pilot from writer Liz Meriwether.

The single-cam laffer, known as "Chicks & Dicks" before Fox gave it a greenlight, is an ensemble project that explores the sexual politics of men and women via a woman who moves in with three boorish men.

David Finkel and Brett Baer will be the showrunners, with Meriwether (the co-writer of "No Strings Attached"), director Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope also exec producing.  Project comes from Chernin Entertainment in association with TCFTV.

If the pilot goes forward, that would give Fox series a pair of Deschanel starrers: this and "Bones" with Emily Deschanel.
