Divorce Commences

Sharon Horgan‘s long awaited US series Divorce, debuts tonight on Sky Atlantic in the UK, days after its US premiere.



Not content with wowing audiences on this side of the pond with her creations Motherland and Catastrophe, both set to return with new episodes in 2017, Horgan has – as previously reported – turned her hand to creating a comedy for HBO featuring the former Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker.

Parker stars as 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.

Horgan’s role on the series, as well as show creator, is as executive producer, writer of the opening pilot, and co-writer of the following couple of episodes. If the show continues past its initial 8 episode order, she’ll no doubt have a hand in further instalments too.

Also featuring Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam and a recurring role for Flight of the Conchords star Jermaine Clement, the series began screening in the US on October 9th, and makes its UK debut tonight at 10:10pm exclusively on Sky Atlantic.

Tomorrow, it will also begin airing on Australian channel Showcase, and various other outlets around the world soon.

The series has a web presence, but be warned – it’s naturally US based, so may be full of spoilers. You can like the show on Facebook, or if you want to stay informed but spoiler free, there’s a UK based HBO feed over yonder.

And if you’re still not sure, there’s a whole wealth of trailers and preview clips on YouTube – here’s one to whet your appetite.
