Fall TV: “Trophy Wife”
Natalie Morales (of Parks and Recreation and White Collar fame) plays the still-single sidekick best friend in ABC’s new sitcom Trophy Wife. The show is about a freewheeling younger woman (Kate, played by Malin Akerman) who becomes the third wife to Bradley Whitford’s Pete. Kate has to deal with two ex-wives, many children, and a new life that’s worlds apart from her old one… which Morales’ Meg represents on a regular basis.
The show stars, in addition to Malin Akerman (Suburgatory) as Kate and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) as Pete, Marcia Gay Harden (Into the Wild, Damages) as Diane, Michaela Watkins (Saturday Night Live) as Jackie, Ryan Scott Lee (Super 8) as Warren, Albert Tsai (How I Met Your Mother) as Bert and Bailee Madison as Hillary.
The show premieres Tuesday, September 24, 2013 on ABC.
