Starz has ordered the eight-episode horror-comedy series Shining Vale, starring Courtney Cox (Friends, Cougar Town).
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. Cox stars alongside Greg Kinnear, Mira Sorvino, Merrin Dungey, Gus Birney and Dylan Gage.
Shining Vale will air on Starz in the U.S. and Canada and on its international streaming platform StarzPlay across Europe, Latin America and Japan.
“Shining Vale is a smart, chilling and funny series that tells the story of a family in turmoil who is suddenly living with a paranormal who helps Courteney Cox’s character get her groove back as she starts to question her own sanity,” said Christina Davis, Starz’ president of original programming. “This group of talented actors, executive producers and director blends comedy and horror brilliantly throughout this series which exemplifies the network’s commitment to improve female representation on and off the screen.”
