Cinemax to Premiere ‘Femme Fatales’ w/ Tanit Phoenix in May!


Cinemax has set a May 13 premiere date for its erotically-charged new anthology series “Femme Fatales.” Hosted by South African model-turned-actress Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2: Frankenstein Lives), each of the show’s 13-episodes will explore just how far a woman will go to get revenge and/or escape a dire situation.

Peep it:

The official synopsis reads:

Women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile.

The show is inspired by and styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels, and takes place in contemporary settings. Each episode features different casts and storylines, some of which are intertwined.

The show’s premiere episode is entitled “Behind Locked Doors” and stars pretty newcomer Kit Willesee as a spoiled, out-of-control Lindsay Lohan-like actress who gets thrown into a cell with a hardened felon, played by Serbian stunner Ana Alexander (Oh, please, may there be a plunger involved).

I gotta say that kicking the series off with an episode set in a woman’s prison is a great way to form a covenant between producers and viewers—a holy union that promises nudity and lesbians in exchange for ratings. I, for one, am all in.

If “Femme Fatales” looks like something you’d enjoy, don’t forget to check out Univision’s “Mujeres Asesinas,” an anthology series—now in its third season—that follows desperate, angry, and often top-heavy women as they viciously discard the men who have wronged them.
