Sarah Jessica Parker Comedy Divorce Lands Series Order at HBO

Sarah Jessica Parker Divorce HBO

We couldn’t help but wonder: Will Sarah Jessica Parker‘s second HBO series be as popular as her first?

The Sex and the City star is officially re-teaming with the premium cabler, which greenlit her new comedy, Divorce, on Thursday, our sister site Deadline reports.

The actress will star in and executive produce the single camera comedy, which follows a married couple — Frances (Parker) and Robert (Wings‘ Thomas Haden Church) — through an extremely protracted uncoupling.

The cast also includes Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live) and Talia Balsam (Mad Men) as Frances’ friends.

Divorce is written by Sharon Horgan, who was involved in the series Pulling, Dead Boss and Bad Management in the United Kingdom. Horgan also will executive-produce alongside Aaron Kaplan (The Mysteries of Laura) and Paul Simms (Girls).

    I do love Molly Shannon, but this just doesn’t sound like a very funny comedy.

    Thomas Haden Church? That does not do it for me – especially in the role described. Bummer.

  4. Cindy Wilks says:

    Thank goodness she’s back!
    SJP is too great a talent to stay away too long..
    She’s got heart, humor and edge and I’m just counting the days!
    Thanx HBO.

    I can’t stomach Molly Shannon. I wonder if she’ll sniff her armpits. Her acting is all one and the same.

  6. Ellie says:

    I thought she was attatched to a drama or miniseries where she was going to play a journalist. What happened to that project? I much rather see her in that than Divorce. Or better yet, renew the Comeback. Geez, HBO.
