Sarah Jessica Parker is taking on divorce — on screen. The actress released the first trailer for her upcoming HBO dramatic comedy, aptly titled “Divorce,” in which she stars alongside Thomas Haden Church.
“A long time coming,” Parker wrote on Instagram. “And a great thrill that my friends @hbo allowed me to share with you the official FIRST look and just a wee appetizer of #DivorceonHBO.”
Divorce has never looked so appetizing. The short clip opens with a straightforward set-up — “I want a divorce,” Parker’s character declares — and flashes through Parker and Church’s characters riffing against each other through a montage of marital strife: in counseling, while divvying up personal space, and even over Church’s Seventies-style mustache.
The show, which Parker also helped executive produce, will be released this fall.
