We met the lovely Malin Akerman at the ABC Moms Cocktail Hour. She was such a bubbly personality. Down to Earth and just one of the girls…..AND MEGA GORGEOUS! You could tell she loves her show Trophy Wife and has lots of fun on set.
We screened The 2 part episode called The Wedding:
IN PART ONE OF A SPECIAL TWO-PART WEDDING EPISODE, PETE AGREES TO GIVE
KATE THE DREAM WEDDING SHE NEVER HAD, ON ABC’S “TROPHY WIFE”
Star-Studded Episode with Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”), Dennis Haysbert (“24”), and Nat Faxon (“Ben and Kate”) Guest Starring
Check out 2 clips below:
This was my first time watching the show and it’s now a permanent fixture on my DVR. I like that it’s funny, but also shows heartfelt moments. The best of both worlds. Let me say that Megan Mullally as “cricket” will have you dying laughing.
The Executive Producers Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern
Q: How did you come up with the idea for Trophy Wife?
Sarah Haskins: We’re the creators, so we came up with the idea together. It’s very loosely based on my life. I married an older man who’d been married a few times before and has children from those different marriages. Kind of like Malin Akerman’s character, without rocking the short shorts. It’s a situation that while unique and highly specific, is also very universal. People have dealt with divorce and co-parenting. It’s very common and we thought has a place on TV.
Q: What’s next for Trophy Wife?
Sarah: Hopefully season 2!
Emily: We just finished editing our season finale and our fate is in ABC’s hands. But we hope we get to come back to do some more.
Sarah: Yeah, and appropriately, our season finale is a Mother’s Day episode. It helps wrap up Kate’s arc all season of “Am I a mom in this family’s eyes or am I just a trophy wife?”
