Divorce Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker Calls It Quits in Her New HBO Comedy

Based on the first trailer for Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Divorce, the HBO comedy is not a series with which we’ll be eager to break up.

In the clip released Wednesday, Parker’s Frances tells her husband (Thomas Haden Church) that she wants a you-know-what. “Are you drunk?” he replies.

From that promising start, the video drops hints about the reasons that the couple’s marriage has gone downhill, including an emotional affair that he’s had as well as his… Actually, we won’t tell you the second one. (You’ll see — it’s funny.)

Despite the ordinarily depressing subject, Divorce, which premieres this fall, also looks pretty damn upbeat. At one point, Frances suggests that it could be “the greatest thing that has happened to us.”

    Rendering Lisa Edelstein’s Girlfriends Guide to Divorce irrelevant in 3…2…1.

    • HAP says:

      Not going to happen. Besides, the only thing in common is the word divorce. The SJP show follows people getting divorced over 13 episodes. The GGTD is about a woman that is already divorced.

    for the hate she gets, SJP is a great actress. this looks like a good guilty pleasure show

  6. puma says:

    I love the symmetry : in her first HBO show she was a single lady looking for the one, in her second HBO show she is a married lady looking to be single again.

  7. ToyCannon says:

    It has Molly Shannon, so I will be watching.

  9. john says:

    I’d be much more interested in this show if the lead actress had talent

    • steven says:

      She has two Emmys. I’d say she does.

      • Disappointed_In_Shameless_EP says:

        Oh, you’re right, Emmy’s always go to the most talented people. Quick let’s count her golden globes as a sign of achievement too?

        Her acting hasn’t gotten any better since Square Pegs

        • Mary says:

          To each their own, you might think she doesn’t have talent but that doesn’t make it so.
          Trailer looks good, think I will give it a chance.

    • MikeC says:

      John, your bias is showing – no need to keep repeating it.

  10. Looks like a bad indie movie. Still gonna watch it though.
