Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 premieres tonight after much fan anticipation. Brought to us by the brilliant minds behind such shows as American Dad, How I Met Your Mother and Modern Family, the show promises to deliver the laughs and the edge viewers are yearning for. The series pairs June (played by Gossip Girls' Dreama Walker) and Chloe (portrayed by Breaking Bad's Krysten Ritter) as the female odd couple of this century. One is a sweet, naive, Midwesterner newly transplanted to NYC. The other is well, The B____ in Apartment 23.

In a recent exclsive interview we asked Dreama why fans will like the show. She replied, "It's very relevant. It's edgy. It's a lot of fun and refreshing, but it's not contrived at all."

She added that unlike some recent shows that attempt to be hip, there's just is. "They're trying so hard and our show is effortless in that way. It's just naturally funny. We would get the scripts and we would laugh out loud. And we would laugh out loud while doing it."

She said that being in a show she is 100% behind makes press junkets simple. "It's so much easier to promote something like this when you're really passionate about it. Thank goodness. I really love it and I'm proud of it, so it's easy for me to sit here and say good things about it."

And speaking of passions, we just had to ask, what are hers? She commented, "It so depends on the hour, really. I'm a heart-on-the-sleeves kind of person. It just depends. I love food. I'm a big food person. I'm really passionate about eating good food all the time. I'm passionate about animals. I love animals. I love to laugh. I love to make people laugh. I feel like a total hippie right now. I'm passionate about all sorts of things — a lot of boring, cuddly Hallmark things, to be honest."

Her passion shines through in every word she utters as it will onscreen in Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. Tune in to the premiere tonight at 9:30 p.m. EST/8:30 p.m. Central on ABC. And watch our entire interview with her on our YouTube channel.
