This oughta be good! Two-time Tony and Daytime Emmy-winning star, Judith Light (Ex-Karen, One Life to Live) has been cast and is set to join yet another exciting new project.  This one is a comedy horror series on the Starz cable network.

In the upcoming series, Shining Vale, Light will star opposite Friends favorite, Courteney Cox, along with Mira Sorvino and Greg Kinnear.

According to Deadline, in story, Shining Vale follows a dysfunctional family that moves from the city to a small town into a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place. But no one seems to notice except for Patricia “Pat” Phelps (Cox), who’s convinced she’s either depressed or possessed – turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same.

Judith will play “Pat’s” mom, Joan and her character is said to be a: “Lithium-infused mother, who has long battled mental illness, and her daughter. Joan is vain and hyper-critical, taking any opportunity to recall her prized youth, or belittle Pat. Of all the horrors that Pat faces, becoming Joan is the most frightening– and most real.”

In addition to Shining Vale, Light will soon be seen in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tick,Tick… Boom! Judith is also working on her series, Shadows in the Vineyard, in which she is executive producer and will co-star.

So glad to hear that she’s so busy. No matter what the role, the super talented Judith Light always gives an excellent performance. She is joining a wonderful cast with Ms. Cox, Ms. Sorvino and Mr. Kinnear. Joan sounds like a fascinating character that Judith can really sink her teeth into.

PS: I still miss the unforgettable Karen Woleck and our beloved One Life to Live.
