‘Divorce’ is an American comedy and drama series produced by HBO Entertainment, Pretty Matches Productions, Merman Films, Kapital Entertainment, and 343 Incorporated. It has been created by Sharon Horgan of ‘Catastrophe‘ fame. The series first premiered on October 9, 2016, and airs on HBO.
The show revolves around the life of a couple who go through a horrible divorce and the consequence they face as a result of their separation. After an initial phase of mental turmoil, the couple eventually learns how to recoup and restart their lives. While fans have absolutely loved what they have seen, critics have more or less been favorable towards the show, saying “While the execution borders on superficial, the dark humor and character chemistry in ‘Divorce’ hit the mark”.
Divorces can be messy and people cope with it differently. If you enjoy this show, we definitely recommend that you also watch ‘Casual‘ and ‘Grace and Frankie‘.
