Bradley Whitford could be headed back to TV.

The West Wing alum has landed the lead in ABC’s comedy pilot, Trophy Wife, starring alongside Malin Akerman, who plays, well, you know.

This would be Whitford’s first regular TV role since 2010’s The Good Guys.

The actor will play a twice-married father of three (terrible children), who falls in love with reformed party girl, played by Akerman. But the transition is rough to say the least. The single-camera comedy comes from executive producers by Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskinswhich.

Since The Good Guys, Whitford has had guest spots on The Mentalist, Parks and Recreation, and appeared in last year’s The Cabin in the Woods.
