Sarah Jessica Parker Has a New HBO Comedy

Dec 22, 2014  •  Post A Comment

Sarah Jessica Parker, whose six-season run on “Sex and the City” from 1998-2004 helped cement HBO’s reputation for top-tier original programming, has a new HBO comedy project in the works. Deadline.com reports that the pay-cable channel is finalizing deals for a half-hour comedy to star and be executive produced by Parker.

The comedy, “Divorce,” which focuses on the long, drawn-out process of ending a marriage, is written by British writer-actress Sharon Horgan and is expected to be produced in New York, where “Sex and the City” was based and where Parker lives.

“This is the first major TV acting commitment since ‘Sex and the City’ for Parker, who has been actively pursued by broadcast and cable networks,” the story reports. “Her only series gig has been a recent arc on Fox’s ‘Glee.’ As a producer, she exec produced the 2009 HBO pilot ‘Washingtonienne.’ In features, CAA-repped Parker will next be seen in ‘All Roads Lead to Rome.’”

Paul Simms, who has worked with Lena Dunham on HBO’s “Girls,” will work with Horgan as executive producer and co-showrunner, the report adds. Horgan created or co-created the British shows “Dead Boss” and “Bad Management.”

  1. comedy?? it sounds like long boring torture-and giving the whole show-directing producing blah blah blah to SJP?? well HBO got really lazy trying to churn out the hits –Sex was only 6 seasons?? it really was only marginally entertaining-it was before streaming when the world was starving for anything not hideous cause TV was shittt-just like how music in the 90’s was crapp because the music corps and moguls force feed the market what they wanted it to buy other wise how would some skankk cow stripper like MeMe the annoying whale have sold squat other than to marry a record exec? marketing is evill people –just know it I don’t care how many elaborate silk flowers, scarves, goofy props and ridiculous get-ups they put on SJP and then shove her in some 8″ stilettos she is still a scary looking broad
