Sarah Jessica Parker will be returning to her HBO roots with today’s announcement that the network had officially picked up her half-hour comedy Divorce to series. The Sex and the City star will play Frances, a “woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.” Sideways actor Thomas Haden Church will play her husband, Robert, while Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam appear as Frances’ pals.

Divorce will shoot in New York this year.
