Netflix’s Dark Comedy “Sirens” Casts Julianne Moore, Milly Alcock, and Meghann Fahy in Lead Roles

A Weekend at a Luxurious Beach Estate Turns Into a Battle of Wits in Molly Smith Metzler’s New Series

Julianne Moore, Milly Alcock, and Meghann Fahy are set to headline the upcoming Netflix limited series “Sirens,” a dark comedy originating from “Maid” creator Molly Smith Metzler. The series, inspired by Metzler’s play “Elemeno Pea,” unfolds over a single weekend at an opulent beach estate.

The plot centers on Devon (Fahy), who becomes increasingly disturbed by her sister Simone’s (Alcock) unsettling relationship with her new employer, the mysterious socialite Michaela Kell (Moore). According to the official synopsis, “Michaela’s cult-like luxurious lifestyle has an addictive hold on Simone, prompting Devon to stage an intervention. However, as Devon confronts her sister, she is unprepared for the formidable challenge that Michaela presents.”

Julianne Moore, renowned for her illustrious career, has earned five Academy Award nominations for her roles in “Boogie Nights,” “The End of the Affair,” “Far From Heaven,” “The Hours,” and “Still Alice,” winning Best Actress for the latter. She also garnered an Emmy Award for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in “Game Change” and has recently appeared in series like “Mary & George” and “Lisey’s Story.”

Meghann Fahy, celebrated for her Emmy-nominated performance in Season 2 of HBO’s “The White Lotus,” is also recognized for her five-season stint on Freeform’s “The Bold Type.” Her acting credits include “One Life to Live” and guest roles on “The Good Wife,” “Gossip Girl,” and “Chicago Fire.”

Milly Alcock gained fame through her role in the first season of HBO’s “House of the Dragon,” a “Game of Thrones” prequel. She is set to portray Supergirl in the rebooted DC film universe and has appeared in Australian series such as “Pine Gap” and “A Place to Call Home.”

“Sirens” marks the first project under Metzler’s multi-year overall deal with Netflix, secured following the success of “Maid.” Metzler will serve as writer, showrunner, and executive producer under her Quiet Coyote banner, with Dani Gorin, Tom Ackerley, and Margot Robbie also executive producing for LuckyChap. Nicole Kassell will direct the first two episodes and act as an executive producer.
