Learn More about the Woman Behind New Girl: Elizabeth Meriwether

The Wall Street Journal just posted an great article about Elizabeth Meriwether who is the creator and executive producer of New Girl so I've you've ever been curious to who's behind the awesomeness that is New Girl check out the article here.

Here are some of my favorite parts:

Making it happen, for Meriwether, means approving every wardrobe choice, making sure every joke lands and sitting with the editors for every cut. There's nothing resembling Hollywood glamour in her day, which often begins before dawn and stretches into the late hours—with food and showers an afterthought. But during those long spans at the writer's table and behind the camera, her quirky, unvarnished charm, easily recognizable to any viewer of the show, shines through—Hollywood's new girl, come to life.
3:30 a.m.: Liz wakes up in her office on the Fox lot in West Los Angeles. She spent two nights in a row sleeping in the office this week. Her office essentials include: 11 vegan meals, five bottles of dry shampoo, one bottle of Pepto-Bismol, one Con-Air hair dryer, seven Ricola lozenges, one bottle of Advil, one can of pepper spray, one Dolce & Gabbana accessories box, one case of Emergen-C, one Lady Speed Stick.

Sounds like her life is pretty crazy!
