You gotta love Courteney Cox. Between her role in Scream as Gale Weathers and her role on Friends, what’s not to love? Even her bad haircuts have been strangely loveable. Now Cox adds another notch to her horror genre belt with the upcoming Starz series, Shining Vale.
The synopsis for Shining Vale goes like this:
The horror-comedy 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), who’s convinced she’s either depressed or possessed – turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same.
Cox’s Shining Vale character sounds like she is a lot of fun. Described as a former “wild child” who spent her youth writing “lady porn”. Flash forward and she is living a tame life with no booze, no drugs and living in a small town. What’s worse is, she still hasn’t finished her second novel.
Shining Vale is written by Jeff Astrof (Trial & Error) and Sharon Horgan (Divorce) with Dearbhla Walsh (The Handmaiden’s Tale) set to direct the pilot of the half-hour episode series.
The series sounds like it could be fun. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section.
