Yes, don’t believe a word that the b—- says, but definitely trust the good girl when she promises that Season Two of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” will be even wilder than its debut season.
“It’s insane,” promises star Dreama Walker, who plays the more straight-laced roommate June to Krysten Ritter’s say-anything, do-anything party girl Chloe. “We’re going home to somebody’s house, but I can’t say who’s; there’s a Halloween episode; there’s a Thanksgiving episode…”
“Oh gosh, the Thanksgiving episode is one of the most wrong episodes of anything I’ve ever seen,” agrees co-star James Van Der Beek.
The breakout sitcom won over critics and viewers by specializing in casually tossed-off high-shock, high-speed comic twists and dialogue. Executive producer and showrunner David Hemingson says he remains stunned at the combustive comedic chemistry shared by leads Walker and Ritter.
“They’re so gifted and there’s nothing you can’t give them,” Hemingson says. “And for Krysten in particular, we write the most shocking, appalling, sometimes borderline sociopathic stuff for her, and she just pulls it off with an aplomb I have not encountered in any other actress. She is just this freestanding law unto herself.”
“We cast Dreama first,” recalls Hemingson. “Dreama walked in – she was the second person to audition – and she sat down and I remember being there watching the camera test going ‘This is perfect! Who could we possibly pair with her?’ We didn’t have an incredibly keen sense of who that person would be. And I remember saying to Jeff [Morton, executive producer] ‘Have you ever seen “Breaking Bad,” man? Watch Season Two: the actress who plays Jane Margolis, the landlord – Krysten Ritter. That girl’s amazing.’”
