Sarah Jessica Parker has returned to TV — and we couldn't be happier!
In a new interview, the 51-year-old actress opened up about her new show, Divorce — and revealed the comedy has made her more interested in finding the secret to a happy marriage than ever before.
"Everybody has some difficult times in marriage, and you can get weary with things. Frances, my role, starts finding the situation unbearable, becomes candid about it, wants out, learns all the difficulties she’ll face, and there’s therapy to see if things are solvable. A lot gets revealed about Frances," Sarah Jessica told Page Six of the series.

"In my own personal world, I’d become interested in long-term relationships. I’ve seen its endless stages, separations, unhappiness, divorces, affairs, hidden relationships. I knew women relied on each other," she continued. "They’re often closer to a woman friend than to their husbands. Since all these iterations interested me, four years ago I went to HBO with this idea, and we began filming in March."
