Following her departure from CBS in June, Couric’s first ABC gig will center on Parker’s role in her new comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It, as well as her more personal role as mother to her twin daughters, 2, and son, 8.

“They’re the source of my joy,” she told Couric.

The two also discuss the experience of media scrutiny in light of the current day "tabloid era.”

"I think the things that are more painful to me are not the intrusion of paparazzi, it's the lack of civility that I find more intimidating and far more painful an experience," Parker shared. "It's the lack of critical thinking. It's the endless snarky, mean way we talk about each other, we approach each other. The anonymity of being cruel, the delight in tearing people down. The tabloid era that we find ourselves in is a cultural boneyard, and that is painful to me."

Couric’s interview with Sarah Jessica Parker will air Tuesday night on Nightline. Her ABC talk show Katie will debut on Thursday, Sept. 8.
