This first-look extended teaser for HBO’s new comedy series Divorce starring Sarah Jessica Parker gets right to point. “I want a divorce,” says Parker’s character Frances, to which her husband Robert, played by Thomas Haden Church replies, “Are you drunk?”
The single-camera comedy created by Sharon Horgan marks the Sex and the City star’s return to HBO in her first major TV acting commitment since SATC wrapped in 2004. Parker stars as Frances, who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.
In addition to Church, Divorce also stars Molly Shannon as Diane, Frances’ high-strung friend; and Talia Balsam as Dallas, a close friend of Frances’.
Divorce is slated to premiere on HBO this fall.
