Sarah Jessica Parker Officially Coming Back To HBO With ‘Divorce’

Sarah Jessica Parker Officially Coming Back To HBO With 'Divorce'

It’s not the return of “Sex and the City,” but given the quality of those movies, perhaps it’s even better: HBO has officially picked up Sarah Jessica Parker’s comedy pilot “Divorce” to series. 

The single-camera series is Parker’s first big TV gig since “Sex,” and given the other talent involved (Jesse Peretz directed the pilot and Thomas Haden Church and Molly Shannon co-star), and the fact that HBO rarely picks up series that aren’t up to par with its reputation for high quality storytelling, there’s a lot of reasons to be excited. 

Irish writer-actress Sharon Hogan wrote and executive produced the series, which will film in New York and tells the story of a “very, very long divorce”:

It centers on Frances (Parker), a woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought. Church plays Robert, Frances’ husband; Shannon is Diane, Frances’ high-strung friend; while Balsam plays Dallas, a close friend of Frances’.
