Focusing on careers, new relationships and finding ways to be happy again, they learn that pursuing the next chapter will be more complicated than they imagined.
Divorce also features Molly Shannon as Diane, Frances’ over-eager friend, whose investment in Frances’ new gallery tests their friendship, even as Diane adjusts to a new normal at home with her husband, Nick (Letts). Talia Balsam plays Dallas, Frances’ close friend, a divorced psychologist who is determined to extricate herself from a secret affair with Tony (Dean Winters), Robert’s divorce attorney. Sterling Jerins plays Lila, Frances and Robert’s complicated teenage daughter, and Charlie Kilgore is Tom, their 16-year-old son.”
