Wellesley-bred actress Michaela Watkins has new TV show

820x421Michaela Watkins, the Wellesley High grad who a couple years back was on Saturday Night Live’s cast, now has a co-starring role in the new ABC sitcom “Trophy Wife.”

The Globe profiles her here, and here reviews the show, which it describes as not “flat-out awful” relative to other new shows this fall. The Boston Herald says “Trophy  is no prize.” We did find one good review though, as the Miami Herald says Trophy Wife “delights.”

In the show, Watkins plays one of the central character’s ex-wives, Jackie Fisher, and has hobbies that include Reiki, jewelry design and organic food co-ops.

For more from Watkins, she’ll be live tweeting the first episode Tuesday night:
