2015 New York City Ballet Fall GalaGrab a Post-It and make yourself a note to see Sarah Jessica Parker's return to HBO -- and New York City -- when "Divorce" premieres in 2016.

The first official photo was just revealed and it seems like they are openly courting comparisons to HBO's "Sex and the City." Yawn if you want, but we're fine with that!

SJP's "Divorce" character, Frances, is a stylish New Yorker struggling in her love life, like Carrie Bradshaw. Here's Frances:


She looks pretty familiar, doesn't she? Frances is described as "a woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought." It's like Carrie after a few years with Big.

The show recently started production in NYC, with SJP as an executive producer in her first major TV role since SATC ended in 2004."Divorce" was created by Sharon Horgan of the British sitcom "Catastrophe," which is another good sign. Thomas Haden Church will play Frances's husband Robert, with Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam, and Tracy Letts as co-stars. No premiere date has been announced yet, but it's joining the 2016 lineup. Do you think HBO should have it follow "Game of Thrones" Season 6? It's a strange transition from King's Landing to NYC (actually, no it isn't) but GoT to "Veep" is already a dramatic tone shift, so it's possible.

Will you check out "Divorce" or are you just not that into it?
