Every new relationship has baggage, but being with an older man often comes with more than a fair share. ABC’s new comedy series, The Trophy Wife, will shine a not-so-bright light on what it takes to really make it work.
The series stars Malin Akerman as Kate, a young, reformed party girl who thinks she’s struck gold after meeting the much older Pete—played by Bradley Whitford—at a karaoke bar. Unfortunately, Kate winds up getting much more than an older, rich husband—he comes with three calculating kids and two eccentric ex-wives. It doesn’t help that Kate’s confidante is her best friend Meg (Natalie Morales), who happens to be the one person that knows less than Kate does about marriage and children.
The Trophy Wife will be premiering later this fall on ABC and is scheduled to air on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. E.T.
