Sitcom vet Nahnatchka Khan was already known around town as a great writer on shows like “American Dad,” “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Unfabulous,” but it was only this year that she got her first creator credit when her script for a show about a femme odd couple with James Van Der Beek (hilariously as himself) as their neighbor got picked up by ABC. Along with being creator of “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” Khan also serves as executive producer and writer on the show, which was such a hit with audiences and critics alike that it got picked up for season 2. And with this talented creator behind it, we don’t think for one second that the show’s success is merely beginner’s luck!
