FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON
LOOKS CAN KILL IN A DANGEROUSLY SEXY TELEVISION SERIES
FROM THE PRODUCERS OF NCIS, CASTLE AND NECESSARY ROUGHNESS
Looks can kill in season one of FEMME FATALES
, the hit Cinemax anthology series about powerful, sexy and dangerous women inspired by and styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels. This January, SEASON ONE
finally arrives on DVD along with over two hours of never-before-seen bonus materials, courtesy of Entertainment One.
The half-hour program from creators Mark A. Altman ("Castle," "Necessary Roughness"
) and Steve Kriozere ("NCIS," "Castle"
) features stories inspired by such noir classics as Double Indemnity
and Pulp Fiction
, and classic thriller TV series like The Twilight Zone
. In each stand-alone episode, women find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile. Every episode is introduced by a mysterious and enigmatic host Lilith, played by Tanit Phoenix (Death Race 2, Lost Boys 3
), and features different casts and storylines, some of which are intertwined as part of the series overall mythology.
Episodes include "Behind Locked Doors (Part 1&2)" in which Hollywood starlet Lacey Rivers (Kit Wileese) finds herself in the big house and is forced to use her acting skills to survive; a gorgeous, hard-working nurse discovers her inner strength during a hostage situation in "Bad Medicine"; "Til' Death Do Us Part," finds Rachel (Jordan Madley) waking up to a dead male stripper six hours before her wedding, and "Speed Date," which crosses After Hours
and La Femme Nikita
in an entertaining mashup featuring Isaiah Mustafa (The Old Spice Guy, Horrible Bosses
) and Reggie Hayes (TV's "Girlfriends"
). Other stars stopping in after hours include legendary Oscar-nominated director Paul Mazursky, Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan, "Entourage"
), Richard Kind (Argo, "Curb Your Enthusiasm"
), Robert Lasardo ("Nip/Tuck," Death Race
