Sarah Jessica Parker leaves Sex And The City behind in new TV show Divorce


Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker will swap high end fashion for second hand outfits in her new show Divorce.

In the series, Sarah plays a wife and mother who decides to end her marriage and stars opposite Thomas Haden Church as her (maybe) soon-to-be-ex-husband.

She told television critics in Los Angeles: "Clothing is part of the whole person in a much more subtle way. You see it in everything: in Thomas's character, in the children's clothing. The family is isolated in a period without it being a period piece."

She added she was inspired by the look of 1970s film and most of what her character wears is from vintage or thrift shops.

The show will premiere in the USA on HBO in the autumn.
