TBS and MTV Acquire ‘New Girl’ Cable Syndication Rights

TBS and MTV have acquired basic cable syndication rights for 20th Century Fox’s “New Girl,” which will make its cable debut in fall 2015.

Under the five-year pact, TBS and MTV will air the series on weekdays. Netflix already has U.S. streaming rights for the laffer.

The fourth season of the comedy — which stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Hannah Simone — will premiere Tues., Sept. 16 at 9 p.m. on Fox. Despite a strong start when it debuted in 2011, ratings for “New Girl” have declined in recent years. Last season, it fell about 20% in the 18-49 demo and finished as the season’s No. 10-rated half-hour in adults 18-49 and No. 5 in adults 18-34. It remains Fox’s top-rated live-action comedy.

“New Girl” was created by Liz Meriwether and is produced by Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Meriwether, Dave Finkel, Brett Baer, Jake Kasdan, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope are executive producers.
