Cinemax Casts Lead in 'Femme Fatales'
South Africa's Tanit Phoenix has landed the lead role in Femme Fatales, Cinemax's first scripted series.
Phoenix (Death Race II, Lost Boys II) will play Lilith, a mysterious, enigmatic narrator who will appear weekly in each episode introducing the episodes of the anthology format. The part has been dubbed a "sexy Rod Serling."
The show, inspired by the men's magazine, will be a half-hour program with stories similar to such noir movies as Bound, Dead Calm and Red Rock West. Fatales will debut next year.
Phoenix is repped by Fortitude and Framework.
