WHITE COLLAR alum Natalie Morales has officially signed on to join the Malin Akerman-lead cast of ABC's pilot TROPHY WIFE, The Hollywood Reporter uncovered tonight.
Morales will reportedly play Meg, a promiscuous partier and close friend of Kate (Akerman), who's on the hunt for a new guy. Morales has also been featured on PARKS AND RECREATION and THE NEWSROOM.
The single-camera project is written and executive produced by Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins and executive produced by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky. The project received a "cast-contingent" pilot order in September.
TROPHY WIFE will follow a "reformed party girl Kate (Akerman), who finds herself with an insta-family when she falls in love with a man with three manipulative kids and two judgmental ex-wives."
Should the network order additional episodes of the project, it will reportedly air next fall.
