In addition to starring in feature films, Deschanel has had several guest starring roles in television shows such as Crossing Jordan and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Deschanel is currently starring in the role of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan in the television series Bones, based on the real life of forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs. She was nominated for a 2007 Teen Choice Award for that role, and also serves as co-producer at the start of the third season (2007-2008).
