Nahnatchka Khan David Hemingson DONT TRUST THE B IN APARTMENT 23 slice

The ABC comedy series Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, from show creator/executive producer/writer Nahnatchka Khan and executive producer/writer David Hemingson, tells the story of a wide-eyed Midwestern girl named June (Dreama Walker), who moves to New York City to pursue her dream, but quickly ends up without a fiancé or job.  Now, her morals are constantly put to the test by her wild party-girl roommate Chloe (Krysten Ritter) and Chloe’s best friend, the actor James Van Der Beek (appropriately and hilariously played by James Van Der Beek himself), as he two girls form an unlikely friendship that leads them both to unexpected places and outrageous experiences.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, co-showrunners and longtime friends Khan and Hemingson talked about how this show came about and how they ended up working together on it, the process of selling the series and finally getting the pilot made about two years later, finding the perfect actress to play the bitch and making sure that she stays the bitch, that they had no back-up plan if James Van Der Beek had turned down the role, how much improvisation they do on set, and what viewers can expect from the journey of the characters this season.  Check out what they had to say after the jump:
