She did wonders as Carrie Bradshaw both on the television and movie screen. Now, Sarah Jessica Parker takes on a challenging role in HBO's Dramedy entitled "Divorce" and the trailer has aficionados excited for its debut. The 51 year old actress portrays a recruiter named Frances next to Thomas Haden Church who plays the husband, Robert who struggles alongside her in their marriage.
The trailer reveals Frances (Parker) asking for a divorce after an unfortunate incident happened one night. It is likely that the whole series will be about marital issues and infidelity, which are also the main reasons why marriages fall apart in the real world. The drama cum comedy series promises heartbreak, laughter and confusion: perfect ingredients of the roller-coaster ride couples go through before and during the big D, reported by Daily Mail.
In an interview with Marie Claire, Parker says she is more than happy to welcome herself to this new journey. In fact, aside from taking on the lead role, she is also one of its executive producers. She claims on becoming curious about exploring marriage.
Joining her in the show's cast and crew are Sharon Horgan and Paul Simms, who are former writers of two successful series "Catastrophe" and "Girls" respectively. In this kind of ensemble, viewers may expect to enjoy humor in the sad context of relationship failure. Although, with a sigh of relief, it's good to know that Simms and the gang are, to quote "not trying to do six seasons of two people fighting each other."
This would be Parker's second big television role since her "Sex and The City Days". Critics and fans expressed their delight in the show which ended last 2011. The question remains whether Parker's experience and present maturity can greatly help the show get high ratings.
