Femme Fatales is an anthology television series,[1] inspired by the men's magazine of the same name, produced by and aired on Cinemax from 2011 to 2012. Each episode features an antiheroic woman, intercut with softcore pornographic scenes.[2] Lilith (Tanit Phoenix) introduces each episode Rod Serling-style and occasionally appears within the narrative.
