After casting Scream franchise vet Courtney Cox earlier this year, the upcoming horror-comedy pilot Shining Vale at Starz has found its leading male in Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear (The Stand), according to Variety.
Written by Jeff Astrof on a story from Astrof and Sharon Horgan (Game Night), the pilot follows 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, 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. Done in a funny, scary way.
