Courteney Cox Remains Queen of Screams in Trailer for New Horror-Comedy Series ‘Shining Vale’

Move over Ghostface, there’s a new villain in town (well, sort of).

Yes, Courteney Cox is back for another horror fest. But, she isn’t facing off against an infamous masked killer. Instead, she’s up against a force much scarier: the supernatural.

In the new horror-comedy series, Shining Vale, Cox plays the role of Pat, a “wild child” who became famous for writing raunchy novels. Now, seven years later, she is struggling to write her next book.

The teaser starts with Pat, her husband Terry (Greg Kinnear), their dog and two kids (Gus Birney and Dylan Gage) driving to a secluded, Victorian mansion in Shining Vale, Connecticut. In an attempt to save her marriage, Pat sees this move as a fresh start. But, they soon discover that there is an evil spirit lurking in the walls.

Pat soon finds herself being haunted by a ghost named Rosemary (played by Mira Sorvino), a middle-aged housewife who no one else can see. And, Rosemary is certainly not happy about Pat and her family moving into her house. But, the author soon finds out that the supernatural force is not such a bad thing. 

One day, Pat raves over the fact that she was able to write 13 pages of her new novel—but has no recollection of doing so. She then celebrates finding her “muse,” that being Rosemary. The dead housewife reveals that they wrote the pages together (talk about a dynamic duo).

Created by Astrof and Sharon Horgan, Shining Vale also stars Merrin Dungey (Alias), Judith Light (tick, tick...BOOM!) and Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks). The first two episodes will premiere on March 6, 2022, on STARZ. 

We can’t wait to see Cox in another horror/comedy role.
