Ahead of her return to the Scream franchise in next year’s movie simply titled Scream, Courtney Cox is set to star in the recently-announced horror-comedy series “Shining Vale,” which has now received a series order from Starz. And we’ve got the first image (via Bloody-Disgusting).
Shining Vale” centers on a dysfunctional family that moves from the city to a small town, not knowing their new home was the site of terrible atrocities. But no one seems to notice except for Pat, who’s convinced she’s either depressed or possessed— turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same.
The eight-episode first season is from Jeff Astrof and Sharon Horgan also stars Greg Kinnear as Pat’s sweet husband, Terry; Mira Sorvino plays the role of Rosemary, Pat’s alter ego; Gus Birney and Dylan Gage play Pat and Terry’s kids.
In the series, 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.
Shining Vale” is executive produced by Jeff Astrof of Other Shoe Productions along with Sharon Horgan and Clelia Mountford (“Motherland,” “This Way Up,”) from Merman, Aaron Kaplan (“The Chi,” “The Neighborhood”), and Dana Honor (“A Million Little Things,” “The Unicorn”) from Kapital Entertainment. Cox is producing with Warner Bros. Television and Lionsgate Television in association with Other Shoe Productions, Merman and Kapital Entertainment.
