Krysten Ritter Got a New Job

DON'T TRUST THE B---- IN APARTMENT 23 - After a naïve Midwestern girl's big city dreams are dashed her first week in New York, she finds herself living with her worst nightmare in this 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" stars Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad," "Gilmore Girls") as Chloe, Dreama Walker ("The Good Wife," "Gossip Girl") as June, Eric André as Mark, Michael Blaiklock as Eli and James Van Der Beek ("Varsity Blues," "Dawson's Creek") as James Van Der Beek. Created and written by Nahnatchka Kahn ("American Dad"), "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" is executive-produced by Kahn, Jason Winer ("Modern Family"), Dave Hemingson ("American Dad," "How I Met Your Mother") and Jeff Morton ("Modern Family"). Winer is also the director. "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" is a production of 20th Century Fox Television. (ABC/PATRICK HARBRON)
KRYSTEN RITTER

It's only been a few weeks since ABC canceled Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, and Krysten Ritter has already found a new home. THR reports that she'll be starring in NBC's Assistance, a sitcom adaptation of a play by Bachelorette screenwriter Leslye Headland. This time, Ritter will play a more traditional working girl: Nora, who — as the title suggests — makes a living as an assistant to a demanding entertainment industry boss. So, now that Ritter is set up, can everyone please devote their energy to finding a new gig for James Van Der Beek? We really don't want to see him disappear again.
