Season Two Debuts Friday, May 25, 2012 at 11 PM
Super-Sized Season Finale Airs August 10th
LOS ANGELES, CA – The groundbreaking, hit anthology series FEMME FATALES returns to Cinemax this May with 12 all-new pulse-pounding episodes. Beginning Friday, May 25th at 11 PM, Femme Fatales ripped from the pages of the bestselling magazine, is the cult smash Entertainment Weekly calls “a badass-chick anthology series” and Geek Monthly hails as “50% Tarantino, 50% Sin City, 100% Cool.”
The sexy, thrilling anthology series is about powerful, sexy and dangerous women styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels. The half-hour program features stories inspired by such noir classic as Double Indemnity and Pulp Fiction and classic thriller TV series like The Twilight Zone.
In each stand-alone episode, which is part of a bigger interweaving mythology, women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile. The series was recently honored as an Official Selection of the prestigious Sitges Film Festival in Spain which screened seven episodes from the series first season.
The season premiere, “16 Minutes of Fame,” is a sly murder mystery and satire on today’s popular reality series like “Jersey Shore” and “Big Brother.”
Notable guest stars in the series include Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill, Independence Day), Jeff Fahey (Lost, Grindhouse), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Antonio Sabato, Jr. (General Hospital, Bones), Kyle Gass (Tenacious D), Steve Railsback (The Stunt Man, Lifeforce), Leilani Sarelle (Basic Instinct), Robert LaSardo (Nip/Tuck, Death Race), Reggie Hayes (Girlfriends), Paul Rae (True Grit), Dean Haglund (The X-Files, The Lone Gunmen), Charlie O’Connell (Crossing Jordan), Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) , Nikki Griffin (Fast & The Furious III) and legendary film director and Oscar® nominee Paul Mazursky.
