2013 ABC Fall TV Preview: Trophy Wife, Super Fun Night, & Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
Celebified's TCA correspondents have the scoop on ABC's most talked-about shows, and we're giving you a rundown of the network's fall highlights. First up, Malin Akerman of Suburgatory charms in Trophy Wife, a sitcom about Kate, who goes from being single and carefree to married to a man with three kids and two exes after a chance encounter at a karaoke bar with a divorced lawyer named Pete. It's hard to resist falling for this in-over-her-head newlywed, even as she gets drunk in the pilot to protect her snarky teen stepdaughter from getting caught with vodka. Maybe not the smartest move, but Kate's even witty and delightful when she's totally plastered. Fans of sight gags and slapstick antics may find Super Fun Night, starring Rebel Wilson, a superfunny addition to the Wednesday night lineup. In the pilot, three besties' 13-year-old ritual of staying in every Friday night gets shaken up after Wilson's Kimmie receives a promotion at her law firm and is invited out for drinks with her handsome British coworker (Kevin Bishop). Even though the ladies find themselves in one embarrassing predicament after another, they end up having more fun than any evening of tacos and virgin margaritas in their PJs could offer. And finally, ABC takes viewers down the rabbit hole in the Once Upon a Time spin-off, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. Sophie Lowe plays Alice, a beautiful, smart, young woman who after her "miraculous, strange and terrifying adventures" in Wonderland has been committed by her father to an insane asylum. It seems nobody buys into her tales of a hookah-smoking caterpillar and an invisible cat. Our advice: Don't be late for this trip to Wonderland!
