ABC buys comedy with risque title

ABC is set to pick up a new comedy pilot with a title that could make waves like $#*! My Dad Says if it makes it to primetime intact.

20th Century Fox TV has sold a project titled Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23, which earns points for being funny and memorable, if not exactly G-rated. Tough to see ABC not brainstorming something softer (then again, the network does have Cougar Town).

The story is about a naive young woman who comes to New York City and ends up with a trouble-making party-girl roommate.

Jason Winer, who directed the pilot for Modern Family, is set to direct this comedy. The American Dad team of Nahnatchka Khan and David Hemingson will write and produce.
