Sarah Jessica Parker Debuts the First Trailer for Her New HBO Comedy Divorce
In Divorce, Parker plays Frances, a woman whose life crisis sends her into panic mode and on the fast track to divorce
The sassy Sarah Jessica Parker that we all love is back!
On Wednesday, the Sex and the City star took to Instagram to share a trailer for the HBO comedy Divorce. She captioned the clip: “A long time coming. And a great thrill that my friends @hbo allowed me to share with you the official FIRST look and just a wee appetizer of #DivorceHBO.”
Parker, 51, plays the role of Frances, a woman who in the midst of a life crisis, surprises her husband Robert (Thomas Haden Church) by asking for a divorce. The troubled couple wind up going to counseling where Frances accuses her estranged husband of having an “emotional affair.”
“It was never an affair because it was never physical,” Robert rebuttals in the clip, which is then followed by a series of awkward events between the two. Interestingly enough, both hope things will eventually mend between them.
The teaser ends with Robert asking Frances where it all started to go wrong in her eyes: “Perhaps when you got the mustache,” she responds.
Divorce premieres on HBO this fall.
