Created by Sharon Horgan (creator and star of the Emmy®-nominated series Catastrophe), Divorce centers on Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker), who, after more than a decade of marriage and two children, has suddenly begun to reassess her life and her strained relationship with her husband Robert (Thomas Haden Church). The series begins with the 50th birthday party of their friend Diane – an occasion marked by high drama when Diane and her husband Nick get into an over-the-top fight – which convinces Frances to tell Robert they should split. But Frances soon discovers that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought, while Robert, blindsided by Frances’ epiphany, struggles to cope with their marriage falling apart.

The story of a very, very long divorce, the 10-episode  first season follows Frances and Robert as they grapple with the fallout from their failing union, not just for themselves, but also for their children and friends. Finding sharp, observant humor in tense situations ranging from awkward public encounters to bitter private therapy sessions, Divorce is about two people at the most difficult  moment in their lives, feeling more intense emotions for each other than they’ve felt in years.
