“This could be the greatest thing that has happened to us,” says Sarah Jessica Parker in the first small Divorce teaser. For a few seconds, Sex and the City fans might think that Parker’s return to HBO will be the greatest thing ever.
The Divorce teaser is quite short. Parker plays a woman named Frances who asks for a divorce from her husband, played by Thomas Haden Church (Wings, Sideways). Perhaps a divorce will allow the couple to make peace with one another? Divorce also stars Molly Shannon and Tracy Letts.
If you were looking for something lighter from Parker, you should feel assured that Sharon Horgan is behind the scenes. The creator and star of Amazon’s acclaimed Catastrophe is one of television’s funniest women, and this project would be more high-profile than her sitcom.
Divorce debuts on HBO this fall.
