ABC Near Deal to Pick Up Provocatively Titled Comedy Pilot

The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, was originally developed for Fox two years ago.

ABC is closing in on a deal to pick up a single-camera comedy pilot tentatively titled Don't Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 from 20th Century Fox TV, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The project, written by David Hemingson and Nahnatchka Khan (American Dad), centers on a young Midwestern girl who moves to New York and is forced to live with a rambunctious partier. It was originally developed for Fox, where it was in contention for the 2009-10 season.

Jason Winer, who helmed the pilot for ABC/20 TV's Modern Family, will direct. Family's Jeff Morton will produce.
