Courtney Cox might be about to have her hands full in Scream this week, she’s also about to move into a haunted house. Starzplay have released a first look clip for her upcoming horror comedy series Shinning Vale.
This show follows a dysfunctional family who moves from the city to a small town living in a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place. No one seems to notice except for Pat(Cox), who’s convinced she’s either depressed or possessed – turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same.
Patricia “Pat” Phelps (Cox) is a former “wild child” who rose to fame by writing a raunchy, drug-and-alcohol-soaked women’s empowerment novel (a.k.a. lady porn). Fast forward 17 years later, Pat is clean and sober but totally unfulfilled. She still hasn’t written her second novel, she can’t remember the last time she had sex with her husband (Kinnear), and her teenage kids are at that stage where they want you dead. She was a faithful wife until her one slip-up: she had a torrid affair with the hot, young handyman who came over to fix the sink while Terry was at work. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, she and Terry cash in all their savings and move the family move from the “crazy” of the city to a large, old house in the suburbs that has a storied past of its own. Everyone has their demons, but for Pat Phelps, they may be real.
The series will also star Greg Kinnear, Gus Birney, Merrin Dungey, Dylan Gage and Oscar® winner Mira Sorvino. The half-hour horror comedy is created by Jeff Astrof (Trial & Error, Ground Floor) and Sharon Horgan.
Shinning Vale will premiere on Starzplay in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Latin America and Japan on Sunday 6th March 2022. It will also premiere on the same day on Starz in USA and Canada.
