Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with comedy 'Divorce'

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) Sarah Jessica Parker's HBO follow-up to "Sex and the City" is a comedy about marital woes.

The premium cable channel said Thursday that Parker will star in a half-hour series titled "Divorce." She plays a woman who finds that making a break from her marriage is harder than anticipated.

Thomas Haden Church ("Spider-Man 3," ''Sideways") plays her husband. Also in the cast are Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam as close friends of Parker's character, Frances.

The 50-year-old Parker starred as relationship columnist Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City" from 1998 to 2004 on HBO, and she reprised the role in two big-screen movies.

"Divorce" will shoot in New York this year, HBO said. A premiere date was not announced.
