The pilot starts the story with Jessica "Jess" Day (played by Zooey Deschanel), a bubbly, offbeat, adorable, eccentric woman in her late 20s who teaches at a local elementary school. On a trip back from another city, she prepared a surprise for her boyfriend. She then caught him cheating in their house. She is determined to move on from her unfortunate relationship. Jess moves out and starts looking for a new place. She saw an ad on Craigslist, where she meets and moves in with three young men: Nick, Schmidt, and Coach.
Nick is a bartender, who is originally from Chicago. Before he became a bartender, he once had big plans for his future. At one point, he wanted to be a lawyer. He then stopped caring along the way and dropped out of law school. He has always wanted to be among "the rich ones". Ironically, he is the poorest guy among all the roommates. (It has been stated that the character, Nick, is loosely modeled after Chicago Punk Rock Musician and legend, Brendan Kelly. Actor Jake Johnson, also from Chicago, was said to have been cast as Nick because he "resembles and embodies the spirit of Mr. Kelly".)
Schmidt is a young white-collar professional and a womanizer who fancies himself as the wishful, modern-day Casanova. He is madly in love with himself, and also happens to have Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. He often schemes to climb the social ladder and is driven by his obsessive urge of becoming "the center". He views Jess as the elusive female mind. Also, he wants to get close to Jess's model friend, Cece. Schmidt often makes his roommates mad and disgusted due to his unexpectedly despicable behavior. Nevertheless, they are good Friends.
Winston is a former basketball player who happens to be Nick's best friend from childhood. Winston was originally the fourth roommate living in the loft. After Coach Damon Wayans, Jr., a personal trainer with rage issues, left the apartment, Winston moved back in. Winston is intensely competitive and never knows what to do next. Whatever he does, he wants to win. He was a point guard in the Latvian Basketball League. He is currently a "part-time Nanny" employed by Schmidt's boss, whom he met at a company party. Winston loves his life and lives it to the fullest, but his ambitions somehow get in his way.
Jess's best childhood friend is Cece. She is a street-smart model. Cece is a diva and gets lots of attention from guys. She falls for "good-looking but not-so-smart" guys. She values her Friendship with Jess and always supports her, no matter what. She has had a few breakups. After a few "booty calls" with Schmidt, she starts to develop feelings for him. In the 22nd episode, she finally admits her feelings to Schmidt. The season ended with a question mark on Cece and Schmidt's relationship.
