Much Anticipated, All-new Comedy Will Join the Hugely Successful ABC Wednesday Night Comedy Block

After a naïve Midwestern girl's big city dreams are dashed during her first week in New York, she finds herself living with her worst nightmare, in a hilarious, contemporary comedy about a female odd couple who are surrounded by an outrageous cast of characters. "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" premieres WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11 (9:30-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

In the premiere episode, "Pilot," June (Dreama Walker) moves to Manhattan for a dream job and the perfect company apartment, only to have them disappear in a puff of reality, thanks to a CEO from the Bernie Madoff school of embezzlement. Deep in debt and out on the streets, June scrambles to land a job and a place to live. It seems that her luck has turned when she gets hired at a coffee shop and finds Chloe (Krysten Ritter), a charming, vivacious roommate - but with the morals of a pirate. Chloe soon swindles June out of all her savings, but she and her snarky friend, James Van Der Beek (playing himself), come to learn that, just because June's naïve, she isn't stupid. June ingeniously turns the tables on Chloe, who is so shocked about being scammed herself that she decides to pull June into her colorful band of friends. Sure, it's all dysfunctional, bizarre and overwhelming, but so is New York City. And with the help of Chloe and the other oddballs around her, June might just learn the survival secrets she needs to make it there.

"Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" stars Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad," "Gilmore Girls") as Chloe, Dreama Walker ("The Good Wife," "Gossip Girl") as June, Liza Lapira ("Crazy, Stupid, Love") as Robin, Michael Blaiklock ("Secret Girlfriend") as Eli, Eric André (The Invention of Lying") as Mark and James Van Der Beek ("Varsity Blues," "Dawson's Creek") as James Van Der Beek.
