Now, this is a series we can get excited about. Take Sarah Jessica Parker, aka Carrie Bradshaw, aka star of Sex and the City and your style icon throughout the early noughties. The woman whose journalistic career somehow paid for countless pairs of Manolo Blahniks. (Seriously, what am I doing wrong?)

Her next project sees her get a foot on the Hollywood ladder with her new comedy Divorce starring SJP in her first major TV role since SATC. Talk about a dream team.
Created by Horgan, the series also stars Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam and follows Frances, a woman who suddenly reassess her life and decides to make a clean break from her marriage, only to realise a fresh start is harder than she thought.

Divorce is coming to American screens this autumn – no word yet on when we’ll get it here in the UK – but in the meantime, here’s that trailer…
