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.

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

Dustin Hoffman's 32-year-old son Jake is readying Asthma, his directorial debut, and he's landed Don’t Trust the B---- in Apt 23's Krysten Ritter as his star. The film will detail "the consequences of the live-fast, die-young mentality in NYC’s indie rock scene." Since that tells us next to nothing, we might as well start wondering if Ritter will front a band, bartend at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, play publicist to some faux Strokes, or what. Also worth guessing about: a potential D. Hoffman cameo.
