James Van Der Beek is returning to TV as part of a new ABC Sitcom titled Don’t Trust The Bitch in Apt. 23.
Van Der Beek’s character is a fictionalized version of himself, sort of like Neil Patrick Harris when he appeared in the Harold & Kumar movies.
Premiering this fall the series will star June (Dreama Walker) an optimistic and honest girl who has no choice but to move in with Chloe (Krysten Ritter) who is amoral and the best friend of Van Der Beek.
Lance Bass of ‘Nsync fame was originally tapped to play a fictionalized version of Lance Bass, but turned down the role which was then picked up by James.
After Joshua Jackson scored big last year with Fringe, it was only a matter of time before his old Dawson’s Creek buddy and rival took another shot at the small screen that made him famous.
