65154_281_45 - ALIAS -From J.J. Abrams, the creator of 'Felicity,' comes this thoroughly contemporary, high-octane series. Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner) is a vivacious, athletic grad student, who has a not-so-typical after-school job: she's an agent for SD-6, a top-secret division of the CIA. Revealing her secret is verboten, and if there's one rule you don't break -- this is the one. But Sydney breaks it, and suddenly her world is spun terrifyingly sideways: Her boyfriend's life is now in grave danger, and Sydney's in a fight for her own life. She also discovers that her long-estranged father, Jack (Victor Garber), is also SD-6 and that the organization might be covering up a secretly nefarious plan. 'Alias' will air Sundays at 9:00 p.m. on the ABC Television Network. (Photo by Norman Jean Roy/ABC via Getty Images) JENNIFER GARNER

'Alias' stars Jennifer Garner, Victor Garber, Ron Rifkin, Michael Vartan, Lena Olin, Bradley Cooper, Merrin Dungey, Carl Lumbly, Kevin Weisman and David Anders.

BACK TO SLIDE

A source close to Affleck and Garner tells ET that while the two are ready to legally end their marriage, "everything today couldn't have been done more amicably."

"The divorce filing was only a matter of time," the source revealed. "Ben and Jen are both still 100 percent committed to co-parenting their children and making sure their family situation works for them all. You can't have anything better than that."

Garner and Affleck announced their separation in June 2015, 10 years after tying the knot. News of Garner's divorce filing comes just one month after Affleck announced he had completed rehab for alcohol addiction, with the support of his estranged wife, "in order to be the best father I can be."

Just one week earlier, a source told ET that while the two have "always remained civil," they would not be reconciling.

"They are doing this at the pace they need to for the best interest of their family," the source added.
