New Girl Sneak Peek: Jake Johnson Takes a Seat in the Director's Chair

On tonight’s episode of New Girl (Fox, 8/7c), Jake Johnson masters the art of being in two places at once.

In addition to starring in a Nick-heavy episode — in which members of Nick’s family (played by comedian Bill Burr and Playing House‘s Lennon Parham) pay him a visit for a very specific reason — Johnson also takes the reins behind the camera in his directorial debut.

In TVLine’s exclusive video above, he and the rest of the New Girl cast take us behind the scenes, detailing how Johnson got the directing gig and what it’s like to have a co-star calling the shots on set.
