Trophy Wife centers on Malin Akerman as a reformed party girl who finds herself with an instant family when she falls in love with a man who happens to already have three manipulative children and two judgey ex-wives.
This is how a poor title choice can kill an otherwise good show. It was a funny show with a great cast. The dynamics between "the wives" were hilarious and not the (usually) cliche you would expect given the title. It really deserved 3 seasons.
Agree wth FrozenField. I didn't have any good expectations about this show just going by the title. Figured it would be just another stale 21 minutes of sex jokes and either female or male bashing. It is none of those. The writing is fresh, funny and fair (all of the characters have flaws and strengths). Most of all it has heart. The "hippy" ex-wife and her son are especially cute! Sad to see it end so soon.
Despite being cancelled early, I liked it! It did make me laugh and I though the strange dynamic of the giant family worked well in the comedy. Even though it's cancelled, I would recommend it to anyone in need of a laugh- you don't even need to watch all the episode or watch them in order.
