Sarah Jessica Parker Talks New HBO Comedy 'Divorce,' Gets Sentimental Over Joan Rivers

Sarah Jessica Parker is once again strutting the streets of New York City, but this time it's for her new HBO comedy, Divorce.

The premium cable network released the first look photo from Parker's upcoming series, and, as always, the 50-year-old actress looks absolutely sensational. We'll definitely admit that Parker's new character is giving us some serious Carrie Bradshaw vibes, (especially with that hair!) but if you think this is going to be Sex and the City: 2.0, think again.

According to HBO, Parker stars as Frances, a woman who "suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage." Unfortunately, the New Yorker quickly realizes that "making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought."

"It was an area of particular interest for me because I'm married, and I love being married, and I'm happily married," Parker said of her new series in an exclusive sit-down with ET in April.

Although her character will be going through a plight of a very long divorce, in real-life Parker has been married to actor Matthew Broderick since 1997. The couple have three children, son James, 13 and twins Marion and Tabitha, six.

"I think marriage is wonderfully complicated and wonderfully interesting, and everybody conducts their marriage differently," Parker continued. "We know almost nothing about people's marriage, because even those who we're most intimate with in friendships, we don't always share the good or the bad. And I just think that at a certain point, some people feel alone and lost."

Parker explained that since marriage and divorce mean so many different things to different people, she's interested in creating "a portrait of divorce."

"I think we're at an age where a lot of people have experienced it. Or are about to, or want to, or secretly wish they could. Or [are] so grateful that their marriage isn't at that state," Parker said. "And so I love the idea of telling that story."

Divorce also stars Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam and Tracy Letts.
