Development News - Greg Kinnear to Play Male Lead Opposite Courteney Cox in Starz Comedy Pilot 'Shining Vale'

Development News - July 15, 2020

Starz's Shining Vale.

  • Greg Kinnear will play the male lead opposite Courteney Cox in the comedy pilot written by Sharon Horgan and Jeff Astrof. He received an Academy Award nomination for the 1997 film As Good as It Gets. He received Emmy nominations for Reelz's The Kennedys and ABC's Modern Family. He has also recurred on Netflix's House of Cards and appeared on CBS All Access' The Twilight Zone.
  • He will play Terry Phelps, Pat's (Cox) sweet and sensitive husband. He assumed he was married to the perfect wife until she had an affair with their young handyman, destroying the kitchen island, and maybe his marriage. Ever the optimist, Terry is willing to do whatever it takes to keep his family together, including intensive couples therapy and cashing in all his assets to buy an Old Victorian house in the suburbs of Connecticut, trading his 12-minute commute for a 90-minute train ride into the city. Despite his brave face and can-do spirit, it is clear that he has some deep-seated resentment, which occasionally peeks out as rage. Especially when his wife tells him she believes their new house is haunted. Terry's challenge will be to ride out whatever is going on with Pat, without completely losing his own mind in the process.
