FOX loves New Girl creator Liz Meriwether as much as we do!

The network has signed on to back Meriwether’s new show set in Antarctica called Thin Ice and we can’t wait to watch it.

Don’t panic New Girl fans, this doesn’t mean the hilarious comedy following Jessica Day (played by Zooey Deschanel) and her loft mates is going off the air anytime soon. It does however mean that we will be getting double the TV brilliance from the show’s creator.

FOX has officially made a pilot production commitment, Variety reports, which means Thin Ice — which is a single-camera series set in Antartica — has the green light from the network.

Meriwether already co-wrote the pilot script for the show with Ed Macdonald and Mark Grimmer. She will also be an executive producer on it with fellow New Girl EP, Katherine Pope, along with Macdonald and Grimmer.

While there is still no cast on board and filming hasn’t begun, we’re very excited about this new cold-weather comedy. Until we do have a premiere date, or news about at least one actor being cast, we’ll just have to keep ourselves entertained with new episodes of New Girl, which is never a bad idea.

New Girl airs Tuesdays on Fox at 8:30 p.m.
