Sharon Horgan & Divorce

FYI Sharon is happily married and intends to stay that way. We are flagging one of the most hotly anticipated new US TV comedy series in 2016 called Divorce.

Synopsis: A woman tries to make a fresh start after a divorce.

What You Need To Know: Fans of the seminal comedy drama might run for the hills at the news that Sarah Jessica Parkeris returning to the network, twelve years after “Sex And The City” wrapped up. But for one thing, they’re forgetting that before the terrible movies, that show was a groundbreaking and often terrific comedy. And there’s reason to believe that “Divorce,” starring and produced by Parker, could be something special.

The cast is strong: Thomas Haden Church plays her ex-husband, Molly Shannon her best friend, and Talia Balsam, Robert Forster, Tracy Letts and Jemaine Clement all have roles. But the reason we’re really amped is that it’s created by the great Sharon Horgan, the Irish actress/writer who was behind both “Pulling” and the currently ongoing, absolutely brilliant “Catastrophe.”

If “Divorce” can be half as raw, funny and charming about splitting up as “Catastrophe” is about getting together, we’ll be there every week.

Airdate: Not yet announced, but with “Girls,” “Togetherness,” “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” taking up HBO comedy slots in the summer, the autumn seems more likely.
