Sharon Horgan is trying something different and trying horror.
The Irish actress, writer and producer and previously created shows such as Divorce and Catastrophy which explores married life. Now she has decided to change things up a bit with a new horror comedy series.
Horgan has sold her new show to the American TV network Showtime.
“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.”
Deadline has described the show as:
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 posses her.
Horgan co-wrote the series with Jeff Astrof who has previously worked on Friends, The New Adventures of Old Christine, and The Wild Thornberrys.
