Sarah Jessica Parker‘s got a whole new cast of girlfriends by her side.

Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon and Mad Men‘s Talia Balsam will play Parker’s best friends on an HBO comedy pilot called Divorce, reports

In the show, Parker plays Francis, a woman in the midst of a life crisis and a lengthy divorce who begins to realize that starting over isn’t as easy as she thought.

Shannon plays a character named Diane, Frances’s friend with a rich husband and beautiful house. And Balsam plays Dallas, Frances’s other best friend who’s been widowed and divorced.

Thomas Haden Church is slated to play Parker’s estranged husband in the show.

If Divorce turns into a series, it will mark Parker’s return to HBO, where she starred in the iconic show Sex and the City.
