Netflix Orders Limited Series 'Sirens' Created by Molly Smith Metzler

Netflix has today given a series order to the original limited series Sirens created by Molly Smith Metzler (Maid). An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

Devon thinks her sister Simone has a really creepy relationship with her new boss, the enigmatic socialite Michaela Kell. Michaela's cult-ish life of luxury is like a drug to Simone, and Devon has decided it's time for an intervention. When Devon tracks her sister down to say WTF, she has no idea what a formidable opponent Michaela will be. Told over the course of one explosive weekend at The Kells' lavish beach estate, Sirens is an incisive, sexy, and darkly funny exploration of women, power and class.

Metzler will executive produce with Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Dani Gorin. LuckyChap Entertainment and Quiet Coyote will produce.

Sirens is the first series ordered by Netflix under Metzler's overall deal with the streamer. That development deal was made following the success of their previous series Maid, which spent 14 weeks in the Global Top 10 TV list on Netflix. The series also received three Emmy Award nominations - including for Metzler's writing.
