Divorce trailer

Yesterday, four months after HBO renewed Vinyl for a second season, they decided to pull the plug on the series. Season one was an expensive misfire, and it marked another disappointment for HBO, following the cancellation of The Brink, the response to True Detective season two, the death of two exceptionally promising shows involving David Fincher, and some production troubles with Westworld. But things are looking up for HBO, a company that’s still been putting out plenty of high-quality content, despite their troubles.

HBO has an impressive lineup for the rest of the year, including their new comedy series, Divorce, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and, an actor I’d watch in almost anything, Thomas Haden Church. The show was created by actor, writer, and producer Sharon Horgan, who has been working on the show for a few years now, sometimes concurrently with her other series, Catastrophe.

Below, watch the Divorce teaser trailer.
