Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 [sic], also known as Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23, is an American sitcom created by Nahnatchka Khan, which is broadcast on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC). The series premiered on April 11, 2012, following Modern Family, as a mid-season replacement during the 2011–12 television schedule.[1] On May 11, 2012, ABC renewed the series for a second season.[2]

Production

The show's former title card, when it was titled Apartment 23

The series was originally titled Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23 and was developed at Fox as a 2009 fall contender, but was eventually passed on.[7][8] In January 2011, ABC green-lighted production of a pilot episode.[8] In February and March 2011, Dreama Walker, Krysten Ritter, and James Van Der Beek were cast as the three leads. On May 13, 2011, ABC picked up the project to series under the shortened title Apartment 23.[9] A few days later, ABC announced that the show would most likely debut in the 2011–12 mid-season.[10]

On October 11, 2011, it was reported that ABC was again renaming the show, this time to a bowdlerized version of its original name, replacing the word "Bitch" with the letter "B" followed by four hyphens.[11]

The series revolves around the lives of two different women—a barista who lost a high-profile upscale job and a savvy street smart con artist—who are roommates in a New York City apartment, with elements of The Odd Couple thrown in for good measure. Actor James Van Der Beek, who plays a fictional version of himself, has a supporting role.

The first two episodes were made available on iTunes, Hulu,[12] ABC.com[13] and on Xfinity in the United States before the premiere on April 11, 2012.[14][15] In Canada, the first episodes were made available on Rogers on Demand and on Citytv.com,[16][17] also before the April 11, 2012 premiere. On May 11, 2012, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 was renewed for a second season, with the remaining six episodes of season one airing as a part of it.[18]

Reception

Critical response

In June 2011, Apartment 23, as it was called at the time, was one of eight honorees in the Most Exciting New Series category at the Critics' Choice Television Awards, voted by journalists who had seen the pilots.[19] The series received positive reviews from critics.[20][21]
