PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Fox's post-Super Bowl party will include Prince making a guest appearance on the comedy "New Girl."

In an episode of the show that will air directly after the big game next month, Zooey Deschanel's character is invited to a mansion party hosted by Prince — a party her friends are determined to crash.

Fox will also air an episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" that night after "New Girl," with the show fresh off its Golden Globe award for best comedy.

The Super Bowl is traditionally the most-watched TV event of the year, so the time slots after it are considered prime real estate.
