Don’t Trust the B….. in Apt. 23

Rarely are mid-season replacements so funny and compelling. But in the case of Don’t Trust the B.. in Apt 23, I think ABC may have a hit on their hands.

The show centers around Chloe (Krysten Ritter), a New York party girl and savvy street smart con artist with the “morals of a pirate,” who causes trouble for her new roommates. Her goal is to sweet talk them into moving in, paying a deposit plus first and last month’s rent, then driving them so batshit crazy that they decide to move out without notice, forfeiting their deposit, allowing Chloe to pocket the cash.

Enter, June (Dreama Walker), a naive small town girl from Indiana who moves to New York City for a new job, that quickly disappears due to an embezzling CEO. Add to the mix a strange play on reality with James Van Der Beek playing, James Van Der Beek. In a stroke of hilarity, Van Der Beek plays a fictional version of himself, often mocking his character from Dawson’s Creek.

Rarely have I laughed out loud so often within a 22-minute period!

The show premieres April 11th on ABC, but you can catch the pilot online now. Check it out. It’s well worth it.
