ABC Offers 'Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23' Pilot Early (Video)
ABC is inviting viewers over to Apartment 23 early.
The network on Monday released the pilot episode for its heavily anticipated midseason comedy series Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23 early.
Dreama Walker stars as June, a fresh-off-the-turnip truck New Yorker, who moves in with Krysten Ritter's Chloe -- the "bitch" from the title -- and is forced to toughen up and adapt under the guidance of her morally challenged new roommate. James Van Der Beek stars as a heightened version of himself and Chloe's best friend.
The early online bow comes as more networks are sampling new series early online. Fox previewed its freshman Zooey Deschanel comedy New Girl ahead of its broadcast bow, CW offered its freshman dramas, including Secret Circle, and NBC did the same with Broadway drama Smash, among others.
Watch the pilot episode, from executive producers Nahnatchka Khan, David Hemingson, Jeff Morton and Jason Winer, below. Don't Trust the B---- in Apt 23 premieres Wednesday, April 11 at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
