Courteney Cox Nabs Starz Horror Comedy; Superstore Losing Series Star

Courteney Cox

Starz, a Lionsgate company, announced Golden Globe(R) nominee Courteney Cox (Friends, Cougar Town) is set to star in the horror comedy pilot Shining Vale, playing the lead role of Patricia "Pat" Phelps. The half-hour comedy from Jeff Astrof and Sharon Horgan is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Lionsgate in association with Other Shoe Productions, Merman and Kapital Entertainment.

Shining Vale is a horror comedy 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. Patricia "Pat" Phelps is 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). Fast forward 17 years later, Pat is clean and sober but totally unfulfilled. She still hasn't written her second novel, she can't remember the last time she had sex with her husband, and her teenage kids are at that stage where they love their vile friends and want you dead. She was a faithful wife until her one slip-up: a torrid 15-night-stand with a hot, young artist/handyman/musician neighbor. In a last-ditch effort to save her marriage, she and her family move from the "crazy" of the city to a large, old house in the suburbs where evil and humor collide.


America Ferrera

America Ferrera will be leaving NBC's Superstore following the current season that ends Thursday, April 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Ferrera stars as Amy and also serves as an executive producer. Superstore was recently picked up for its sixth season. In its fifth season Superstore is averaging a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.8 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" Nielsens. The season premiere has surged to a 3.4 in 18-49 and 7.5 million viewers when viewing on all platforms is counted, four times the episode's next-day "live plus same day" 0.8 rating in 18-49. Superstore continues to rank as one of NBC's strongest digital performers, generating 50% of its "live plus 35 day" 18-49 average this season from digital sources, tying The Good Place as NBC's most digital series so far this season.
