The series is dubbed a black comedy, and comes from Sharon Horgan, the creator behind Catastrophe. It tells the story of a family who move away from their home in a busy city to enjoy suburb life. Friends star Courteney will be playing the role of Patricia Phelps, a writer and the matriarch of the Phelps family, whose mental health takes a turn after her marriage takes a bad turn.

The synopsis reads: "A former 'wild child' who rose to fame by writing a raunchy, drug-and-alcohol-soaked women's empowerment novel... Pat is now clean and sober 17 years later but totally unfulfilled.

Courteney Cox in new show Shining Vale

"Buying a 200-year-old house that was on the market for almost three years and sold for more than $250K below asking seemed like a good idea on paper, but Pat senses that the Phelps are not alone; especially when an old-fashioned-looking woman appears hovering outside their family room window."

Joining Courteney in the new show is Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear, perhaps best-known for his role in As Good As It Gets and You Got Mail. The Friends star even shared a glimpse of filming behind the scenes of Shining Vale, on which she also works as a producer. The actress posted a reel video on her  social media, telling her fans: "Here I am on the backlot of Warner Brothers filming my show, Shining Vale.

"There's definitely a lot of time between set-ups, but I don't get bored. No, I see opportunity all around." The video then cut to a hilarious montage of Courteney working all around the WB lot, manning a fire truck, serving food at a stall and giving fans a tour of the lot.
