Sarah Jessica Parker will be playing the lead role in HBO’s upcoming series “Divorce.”
Just recently, Spoiler TV dropped the official synopsis for the TV show, as well as a new teaser. “Divorce” will follow the life of Frances (Parker) who has been married to her husband Robert (Thomas Haden Church) for a decade. They have been blessed with two children. In the series, Frances reassesses her life and her strained relationship with Robert. She files for divorce, but soon realizes that having a fresh start on her own is very difficult.
Parker also serves as one of the executive producers for the HBO TV series. She is joined by “Girls” creator Paul Simms, “Divorce” creator Sharon Horgan, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan. The new series also stars Molly Shannon as Diane, Frances’ friend who is happily married and lives in a beautiful house but doesn’t have children. Frances’ other friend Dallas (Talia Balsam) has been both divorced and widowed. “Homeland” star Tracy Letts will play the role of Nick, Diane’s husband, while Frances and Robert’s two children Lila and Tom will be played by Sterling Jerins and Charlie Kilgore, respectively.
Meanwhile, in the teaser released by HBO, Frances and Robert are having yet another explosive argument. The couple no longer get along, and they often curse at each other. The two also make each other’s lives miserable by playing pranks on each other. However, despite their marriage troubles, Frances and Robert will also have meaningful conversations in the 10-episode series.
In other news, the “Sex and the City” alum recently described “Divorce” in three words. While speaking with Marie Claire via (E! News), Parker said that it is “honest, heartbreaking and amusing.”
