After more than a decade of marriage and two children, Frances has suddenly begun to reassess her life and her strained relationship with her husband. But she soon discovers that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.

Set in Westchester County, NY, DIVORCE is created by Sharon Horgan ("Catastrophe"), with Paul Simms (HBO's "Girls") serving as a showrunner on the series. Paul Simms, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sharon Horgan, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan executive produce.

DIVORCE also stars Molly Shannon (Emmy(R) nominee for HBO's "Enlightened" and "Saturday Night Live") as Diane, Frances' high-strung friend, who has a successful husband, a beautiful house and no children; Talia Balsam ("Mad Men") as Dallas, Frances' close friend, who has been both widowed and divorced; Tracy Letts ("Homeland") as Nick, Diane's husband; Sterling Jerins ("World War Z") as Lila, Frances' and Robert's daughter; and Charlie Kilgore ("Moonrise Kingdom") as Tom, their son.
