Shining Vale – Judith Light has been added to the cast of this forthcoming Courtney Cox horror comedy. “The show, which is currently in production in Los Angeles now, follows a dysfunctional family that moves into a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place. Only one person in the family seems to notice the house’s bad energy, though: Pat (Courteney Cox), who at first thinks she’s either depressed or possessed. Light will play Joan, who is described as Pat’s “Lithium-infused mother,” who has battled mental illness for a long time — and also battled her daughter, who she blames for her mental illness. Joan is vain and hyper-critical and will take any opportunity to try to reclaim her youth or belittle her daughter. Joan may be the most frightening horror Pat faces”. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/judith-light-starz-shining-vale-casting-1235038287/

Standing By – Schitt’s Creek co-creator Dan Levy is to star in an animated comedy. “Standing By is a satirical look into the lives of a group of eternally bound, disgruntled guardian angels and the lessons they’ll eventually learn from not only the dysfunctional humans they’re in charge of protecting, but also from each other. Levy is trading in the cheerful nature of Schitt’s Creek to voice a lead character named Carey, the newly deceased, cynical spotter to the group. Before his death, he had a lonely, isolated life in New York City (this last part strikes a little too close to home). Standing By is set to join Solar Opposites in Hulu’s effort to bring animated originals to the streamer with the help of 20th Television Animation”. https://www.avclub.com/dan-levy-will-voice-a-cynical-guardian-angel-in-hulus-a-1847439286
