The show is written by Sharon Horgan and Paul Simmons. It’s directed by Jesse Peretz. When the YahooTV asked Paul Simmons on the title of the show, he said,” I had a long talk with my wife after I got back from the TCAs, and she read that quote somewhere. But no, it is fun, and what seemed so appealing to me about this project originally is that so many shows that want to tackle marriage or something, there’s just sort of built into it is, you know, if you have a show about marriage these people are always going to be together. So no matter what problems happen, it’s never going to go beyond a certain point.”
We are in for a pleasant surprise if it’s hard for us to imagine Sarah Jessica Parker playing someone else other than Carrie Bradshaw.
The pilot episode of “Divorce” premieres October 10th on HBO at 3:10 A.M. ET.
