EXCLUSIVE: Dreama Walker, who is recurring on the CBS drama The Good Wife, is set to star in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 (working title), which is directed by Jason Winer. The 20th TV-produced project, written by Nahnatchka Khan, centers on June (Walker), an earnest, honest, optimistic girl from the heartland who, due to circumstances beyond her control, is forced to move in with Chloe, a sexy, unstable New York City party girl who has the morals of a pirate. Gersh-repped Walker, who plays Zach Florrick’s conniving ex-girlfriend Becca on The Good Wife, also recurred on Gossip Girl.
