TCA: Malin Akerman's First Thought on Playing a 'Trophy Wife' - 'Oh, Hell No'

Don't expect Malin Akerman's character on ABC's new comedy series, "Trophy Wife," to live up to the title.

When Akerman first saw the title of the series, she thought, "Oh hell no, I'm not playing a trophy wife," she said at Sunday's Television Critics press tour. But then she read the script.

"I thought it was brilliant. It's the complete opposite of a trophy wife," she said.

The producers are hoping that viewers will catch on to its tongue-in-cheek title.
