Shining Vale - Horror Comedy Receives Pilot Production Commitment at Showtime

In a competitive situation, Showtime has landed Shining Vale, a horror comedy from Divorce creator Sharon Horgan, Trial & Error co-creator Jeff Astrof and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment (The Chi). The project, from Warner Bros. TV where Astrof is under an overall deal, has received a pilot production commitment from the network.

Written by Horgan and Astrof, Shining Vale is a horror-comedy about a dysfunctional family that moves from the city to a small town in a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place, but no one seems to notice except for the mother — and the evil spirit that’s trying to possess her. It’s a show about mental illness, small town politics, religion and a family battling their demons. But in a really funny, and scary way.
