Femme Fatales is an anthology TV series,[2] inspired by the men's magazine of the same name, with each episode focusing on an antihero woman, intercut with softcore pornographic scenes[3] and produced by Cinemax. Lilith (Tanit Phoenix), introduces each episode Rod Serling-style and occasionally appears within the narrative. Some characters make encore appearances in later episodes. Unlike most After Dark shows that feature porn actors, Femme Fatales features mainstream actors - such as Richard Kind, Adam Goldberg, Paul Mazursky, Ryan Bittle, Robert LaSardo, Stephen Macht, William Gregory Lee, Dean Haglund, Charlie O'Connell, Daniel Bess, Angus Scrimm, Carrie Genzel, Ellie Cornell, Neil Hopkins in season 1, and Antonio Sabato Jr., Kyle Gass, Leilani Sarelle, Chris Mulkey, John Enos III, Vivica A. Fox, Sandra McCoy, Jeffrey Combs, Robert Picardo, Ashley Hamilton, Nikki Griffin, Eric Roberts, Kate Luyben, Steve Railsback, Paul Rae, Jes Macallan, Casper Van Dien, and Jeff Fahey Betsy Rue in season 2 [2]
