Season 1

Trophy Wife is an American television sitcom co-created and executive produced by Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins which revolves around the life of a reformed party girl who ends up marrying a lawyer after she meets him at a karaoke bar and in the process finds herself dealing with his two ex-wives and their children, along with the chaos she has to deal with when it comes to trying to blend in with this complicated family that she married into.

The series premiered in the USA on ABC on 24 September, 2013.

Trophy Wife premiered in South Africa on DStv's Vuzu channel on Tuesday 10 December 2013, at 19h00. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 22 episodes in the first season.

Synopsis

They say the third time's the charm, and reformed party girl Kate (Malin Akerman) is hoping that's true when she becomes the third wife of a slightly older man, Pete (Bradley Whitford).

They fell into each others' arms (literally) at a karaoke bar, and flash forward a year later, Kate finds herself with an instafamily complete with three stepchildren and two ex-wives. But Kate is determined to make this work and become a part of the family no matter what.

Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) is ex-wife number one, an intense and overachieving former Olympic athlete and the mother of teenagers Hillary (Bailee Madison) and Warren (Ryan Scott Lee). Diane is quick to convey her withering disapproval of Kate's barely tapped maternal instincts.

Daughter Hillary is not a fan of her new step-mom either, despite Kate's attempts to win her trust. And son Warren may have an erotic fixation on his dad's beautiful, young spouse.

Ex-wife number two, Jackie (Michaela Watkins), is mother to adopted son Bert (Albert Tsai), and can pull Pete's strings with her special blend of neurotic, new-ageyness.

Juggling all this baggage is uncharted territory for Kate, who finds support in the most unusual place - with her best friend, Meg (Natalie Morales), a party-hearty singleton and the only woman Kate knows who has less experience with kids than she has.

Trophy Wife stars Malin Akerman (Suburgatory) as Kate, Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) as Pete, Michaela Watkins (Saturday Night Live) as Jackie, Natalie Morales (Parks and Recreation) as Meg, Ryan Scott Lee (Super 8) as Warren, Bailee Madison (Once Upon a Time) as Hillary, Albert Tsai (How I Met Your Mother) as Bert and Marcia Gay Harden (Into the Wild, Damages) as Diane.

Trophy Wife is written and executive-produced by Emily Halpern & Sarah Haskins, executive produced by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky (The Office), produced by Malin Ackerman. The pilot was directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect, Avenue Q).

Trophy Wife is from ABC Studios.
