Starz Picks Up Horror Comedy Pilot Shining Vale


Starz today announced the pilot pick-up of the horror comedy Shining Vale from Other Shoe Productions, Merman and Kapital Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and Lionsgate Television.

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, 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.
