Sophia, a misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss. This show is loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal Founder, Sophia Amoruso.
This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
June moves to New York City to pursue her dream job at a mortgage company, which comes with its own apartment. However, the company is shut down on her first day and the apartment is taken away. June moves in with Chloe, who is a con-artist and all-round party girl. At first, they don't get along. When Chloe's attempts to con June backfire, they end up becoming friends.
The show was originally developed by Fox and was titled "Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23." Fox passed and ABC filmed 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. See more »
I gave this show a 9 in hopes of giving it a 10 some day. The show was funny, interesting and smart and James Van Der Beek goofing on himself was a great twist. This show has some good potential. I'm always skeptical about new sitcoms (too many bad ones have come along, too many good ones have been dumped) but I'm always willing to give a new one a shot. I'm not disappointed so far after just one episode. Krysten Ritter and Dreama(yeah, I know)Walker play well off each other and the supporting cast has a nice feel to them. No spoilers, no hints about what happens, just a simple thumbs up. The title and synopsis sum up what the show is about nicely.
