Three actors have been cast in the new Netflix limited series Sirens, created by Maid writer Molly Smith Metzler. Julianne Moore, Meghann Fahy and Milly Alcock (pictured left to right) are part of the female-driven, dark comedy series produced by LuckyChap.

The series is an adaptation of Metzler’s play Elemeno Pea, which he wrote at the Juilliard School. The series centers on Devon, who finds his sister Simone having a very creepy relationship with her new boss, enigmatic socialite Michaela Kelli. Michaela’s cult-like life of luxury is like a drug to Simone, and Devon has decided it’s time to intervene.

When Devon tracks down his sister to share his unswept opinion, he has no idea what a formidable opponent Michaela will become. Set over the course of an explosive weekend on the leafy beach estate of The Kells, the series is a sharp, sexy and darkly funny study of women, power and class.

Fahy plays Devon DeWitt, who finds himself down in his hometown. She’s funny, flexible and fiercely protective – especially of her younger sister Simone, played by Alcock. Sharp and charming, Simone has hit the jackpot in her job as a personal assistant to a billionaire.

Moore plays Michaela Kell, a philanthropist and animal activist who runs the island’s top club and is the wife of billionaire Peter Kell. His relationship with his assistant Simone seems too close.

In addition to directing and writing the series, Metzler will also executive produce Quiet Coyote alongside Dani Gorin, Tom Ackerley and Margot Robbie at LuckyChap. Emmy nominee Nicole Kassell directs the first two episodes and also serves as an executive producer.

Sirens is the first series in Metzler’s announced 2022 creative partnership with Netflix, and follows the Margaret Qualley-led limited series Maid, her first highly acclaimed project with Streamer, which earned her Emmy, Humanitas and USC Scripter Award nominations. .

Moore, an Oscar winner who recently appeared in Starz’s Mary & George, will soon be seen in Pedro Almodóvar’s first English-language film, The Room Next Door. Moore also starred in the Apple TV+ limited psychological thriller series Lisey’s Story

Fahy is known for her Emmy-nominated role as Daphne in the second season of The White Lotus and as Sutton Brady in Freeform’s The Bold Type. He is part of the cast of Vertical’s upcoming romantic comedy-horror Your Monster, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. An upcoming project is the Netflix limited series The Perfect Couple

Alcock is an Australian actress who made her breakthrough playing the young Rhaenyra Targaryen in the first season of HBO’s House of the Dragon. She has recently been groomed for an even more coveted role as DC has tapped her to lead the new Supergirl movie: Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. That’s why he will play a role in James Gunn’s new Superman movie.

Metzler also previously worked as a writer and executive producer for Showtime’s Shameless (USA). Other credits include Hulu’s Casual and Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.
