As TV Line reported earlier this morning, Emmy-winner Bradley Whitford (THE WEST WING) is set to join Malin Akerman in ABC's upcoming pilot, TROPHY WIFE.

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. 

According to the report, TROPHY WIFE would 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."

A classically trained stage actor who has received critical acclaim for his roles in theater, film, and television, Bradley Whitford quickly gained overnight fame as the sarcastic yet vulnerable, Josh Lyman, on the critically-acclaimed drama The West Wing. He most recently starred in the theater production ART at the Pasadena Playhouse. Whitford also recently co-starred in the thriller, The Cabin in the Woods alongside Richard Jenkins and Chris Hemsworth. Before starring in the Hallmark film Have a Little Faith alongside Laurence Fishburne and Martin Landau, Whitford headlined the television series The Good Guys alongside Colin Hanks. Additional television credits include Studio 60 from the Sunset Strip, ER, The X-Files and NYPD Blue. His performance on The West Wing earned him a 2001 Emmy Award, as well as Golden Globe nominations in 2001 and 2002. Whitford’s film credits include An American Crime, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Kate and Leopold, Albert Brooks’ The Muse, Bicentennial Man, Scent of a Woman, A Perfect World, Philadelphia, The Client, My Life, Red Corner, Presumed Innocent and My Fellow Americans.
