Natalie Morales Joins ABC's Trophy Wife Pilot

90210 Natalie MoralesThe Middleman alum Natalie Morales has joined ABC’s comedy pilot Trophy Wife, our sister site Deadline reports.

The single-camera project revolves around a reformed party girl, Kate (27 Dresses‘ Malin Akerman), who finds herself in an insta-family when she falls for a man (The West Wing‘s Bradley Whitford) with three manipulative kids and two judgmental ex-wives (played by Marcia Gay Harden and Michaela Watkins). Morales will play Kate’s best friend Meg.

Feature writers Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins penned the script and will serve as EPs alongside Office scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

In additional to the cult ABC Family series Middleman, Morales’ credits include The Newsroom, Parks and Recreation and White Collar. Starting tonight, she’ll recur on The CW’s 90210.

    Even though this synopsis doesn’t do a lot for me right now, I loved The Middleman, so I will definitely check this out.

    I was surprised when Natalie Morales didn’t make the top twenty actresses everyone hoped would get work in the upcoming pilot season.

    So glad to see she got something potentially juicy.

    I liked her on White Collar. Glad she has another new show. Sounds like she has kept very busy working.
