Shining Vale: STARZ Unleashes Trailer for Courteney Cox Horror Series

Starz released the trailer and key art for their upcoming horror comedy that's part family dramedy, part homage to classic horror with Shining Vale, created by Jeff Astrof (Trial & Error, Ground Floor) and Sharon Horgan (Divorce, Catastrophe). Starring Emmy nominee Courteney Cox (Friends, Cougar Town), Oscar nominee & Emmy winner Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets, The Kennedys), and Oscar winner Mira Sorvino (Hollywood, The Expecting), the cable series is an exploration of classic horror, fear of carrying on family trauma, and the iconic moments that come with any haunted home. And in case you were wondering? Shining Vale packs a strong, horror-filled punch in the official trailer.

Pat and Terry Phelps (Cox and Kinnear) cash in their life savings and move from a cramped apartment in Brooklyn to an old Victorian mansion in Shining Vale, Connecticut as a last-ditch effort to save their marriage after Pat's torrid affair with Frank, their young hot handyman who came over to fix the sink while Terry was at work. 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), Pat is now clean and sober 17 years later but totally unfulfilled. Pat still hasn't written her second novel, she can't remember the last time she had sex with her husband, while her teenage daughter, Gaynor (Birney) wants Pat dead and Jake (Gage), their adolescent son, is so addicted to screens he's completely checked out. Buying a 200-year-old house that was on the market for almost three years and sold for more than $250K below asking seemed like a good idea on paper, but Pat senses that the Phelps are not alone; especially when an old-fashioned-looking woman appears hovering outside their family room window.

The Phelps quickly learn why the agents were so motivated to sell the house for a fraction of the asking price. Seems a few details were glossed over, including a triple murder-suicide and a host of other atrocities they neglected to mention. But neither Terry nor the kids seem to notice that something is horribly wrong with their new home; only Pat can see things move and hear the bumps in the night. She's also the only one who sees the spirit of the person who used to live there, Rosemary (Sorvino), a Fifties housewife who may or may not be trying to take over Pat's body. Is Pat depressed, or possessed? Turns out the symptoms are exactly the same. Shining Vale premieres two episodes Sunday, March 6, 2022, at midnight on the STARZ app, all STARZ streaming and on-demand platforms, and internationally on the STARZPLAY premium streaming platform across Europe, Latina America, and Japan. On linear, it will debut on STARZ at 10:20 pm ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.
