Scream franchise star Courteney Cox is making her return to horror in the upcoming Starz pilot “Shining Vale.” Greg Kinnear will be starring alongside the actress, Deadline reports.
The new half-hour horror-comedy hails from “Divorce” creator Sharon Horgan and “Trial & Error” co-creator Jeff Astrof, Warner Bros. Television, and Lionsgate. Dearbhla Walsh (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) will direct the pilot.
The series “is about a dysfunctional family that moves from the city to a small town into a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place. But no one seems to notice except for Pat (Cox), the mom, who’s convinced she’s either depressed or possessed — turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same. Everyone has their demons — but are Pat’s real? Or is this the portrait of a typical family torn apart by mental illness?”
