UPDATED: ABC has set a return date for cancelled comedy series Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23 — though the comedy’s last unaired episodes will be put up online, not on TV. Beginning May 17, the remaining eight episodes of the Krysten Ritter-starring series will be available on ABC.com, Hulu and iTunes.
Remember when in 2009 CBS put in development a comedy series based on the blog Shit My Dad Says? The racy title raised a lot of eyebrows throughout the project’s development process. The network toned it down to $#*! My Dad Says when it picked up the comedy to series, but still drew the wrath of watchdog Parents Television Council, which urged a boycott of the show.
EXCLUSIVE: Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt. 23 executive producer/co-showrunner Dave Hemingson has signed a new multi-year overall deal with the studio behind the ABC comedy series, 20th Century Fox TV. The pact keeps Hemingson on Don’t Trust The B—-, which launched in April and was renewed for a second season, and allows him to develop.
Columbia University School Of Law graduate Hemingson has spent most of his writing career at 20th TV, where he has been for the past eight years. He has worked on 20th TV’s animated comedies Family Guy and American Dad, live-action comedy How I Met Your Mother and drama Lie To Me. He also created several projects that went to pilot, two of which — the 2005 single-camera comedy Kitchen Confidential starring Bradley Cooper and 2010 ABC drama The Deep End – went to series. Hemingson also co-showran 20th TV’s Fox comedy series Traffic Light before he teamed with Nahnatchka Khan for Don’t Trust The B—-, which she created.
