Actress Zooey Deschanel is moving behind the camera to work on her own production company.

The (500) Days of Summer beauty has launched the business with pal Sophia Rossi, who she launched girl-focused website Hello Giggles with in 2011.

The pair have already proved successful in their producing endeavours and have inked a two-year deal with 20th Century Fox Television, the studio behind Deschanel's hit show New Girl, to develop comedy and drama projects.
