'Trophy Wife' (ABC)
Premiere Date: September 24
We're anticipating because: Malin Akerman has been circling on the periphery of stardom for years and this could be her best shot yet in a surprisingly smart comedy that also features fine work from Bradley Whitford, Marcia Gay Harden, Michaela Watkins and Natalie Morales. Creators Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern were the hits of the TCA press tour with their quick wit and solid sense of the world of this show, which has an unfortunate title, but isn't really about trophy wives at all.
We're nervous because: No. Seriously. Akerman's character may have an older husband, but she isn't a trophy wife, so don't let this fall victim to the "Cougar Town" Bad Name Disease. As with any ensemble family comedy, the potential failings are still myriad. Already, there's at least the risk of mugging children, an underutilized Morales and a tenuous balance between carefully crafted verbal wit and potentially lazy physical comedy comedy.
