The show was originally developed by Fox and was titled 'Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23'. Fox passed and ABC did a pilot with the title 'Apartment 23'. It was chosen as one of the 'Most exciting new series' at the Critics' Choice Television Awards. The series title was then changed to a bowdlerized version of its original name.
Nicholas D'Agosto, who plays Will (in episode 15 of season 2), starred in Fired Up! (2009) along with Michael Blaiklock. Contrary to Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, Nicholas D'Agosto is a main character in Fired Up! while Michael Blaiklock plays a minor character.
