“Trophy Wife,” Malin Akerman’s new ABC show, has premiered early. The network has released the first episode online.
Akerman stars as Kate, the third wife of Bradley Whitford’s Peter. His two ex-wives, Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) and Jackie (Michaela Watkins) are still in the picture, as are the kids Peter has with each of the exes. Don’t let the name fool you — it’s supposed to be “ironic.”
“The title we always meant to be ironic,” executive producer Lee Eisenberg told reporters at TCA. “When you look at the promos, I think that counterbalances it.”
Akerman’s character is the opposite of a “trophy wife.” Watch and see for yourself. Click over here to see what HuffPost TV’s editors had to say about “Trophy Wife” and ABC’s other new offerings.
