HBO Picks Up Sarah Jessica Parker's ‘Divorce’

Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to HBO. The pay cabler has picked up her series Divorce.

The half-hour comedy, from British writer-actress Sharon Horgan, tells the story of a “very, very long divorce.” Parker is an executive producer on the series, along with Paul Simms, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan.

Parker stars as Frances, who HBO describes as a “woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage.” Thomas Haden Church will play Parker's husband, Robert. Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam round out the initial cast.
