In preparation for an upcoming Best Episode installment, I’ve been doing a re-watch of Veronica Mars, which reminded me that before Gilmore Girls and Breaking Bad, Krysten Ritter in a recurring role in the once-UPN series, playing the peppy high schooler Gia in the series second season. Next month, she’ll star in ABC’s new comedy Don’t Trust the B---- In Apartment 23. Ahead of its April 11 debut, Hulu is giving viewers an early look at the series premiere.
Starring Krysten Ritter, Dreama Walker and James Van Der Beek, Don’t Trust the B---- In Apartment 23 follows a young woman who moves to New York and into an apartment with a street-savvy girl who may be looking to take advantage of her. Ritter and Walker play the two women, and James Van Der Beek is playing a fictional version of himself. Check out the full series premiere episode below.
While only loosely related to the above series, I feel it’s worth noting that Van Der Beek joins a growing list of celebrities willing to play funny versions of themselves, with Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Warwick Davis (and a host of celebrity guest stars) playing themselves in Life’s Too Short (currently airing on HBO), and Matt LeBlanc returning to his role as Matt LeBlanc in the upcoming second season of Showtime’s Episodes. Take note, celebrities... reality shows are yesterday. Today, it’s all about being a funnier version of yourself in TV comedies!
Don’t Trust The B---- in Apartment 23 premieres April 11 on ABC.
