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.

Sirens is the first series out of Metzler's creative partnership with Netflix and is based on her play Elemeno Pea, which she wrote at The Juilliard School. Smith and LuckyChap's previous series at Netflix, Maid, starring Margaret Qualley, spent 14 weeks in the Global Top 10 TV and reached the Top 10 TV in 93 countries. The Emmy, Golden Globe and Critics Choice-nominated series won the Writers Guild Award for Limited Series Writing/Adapted Long Form and an AFI Award.

Jay Pharoah

Fox has tossed the ball to actor and comedian Jay Pharoah (SNL, The Blackening) to host its new game The Quiz with Balls. Pitting brains against balls, while combining a high-stakes quiz show with a large-scale physical competition, each episode of The Quiz with Balls features two families competing for $100,000 in a "battle of the balls." Standing on a high platform over a glistening pool, they must all work together as they face a multiple-choice quiz where each answer is allocated to a spot with a giant ball positioned up behind it. If the correct answer is chosen, the ball rolls down and stops just before colliding with the player... if the answer is wrong, the massive ball rapidly descends and mercilessly whacks them into the pool below. The more players each team loses, the harder the questions get. The longer they last, the more money they bank, until one "dry" family member plays the final round for The Quiz with Balls' $100,000 Grand Prize. The all-new series, executive produced by Talpa Studios and Eureka Productions, is set to premiere this Summer on Fox.

Brittany Snow to Star Opposite Malin Akerman in Starz Series; Dennis Quaid Joining Paramount+

Brittany Snow

STARZ has confirmed that Brittany Snow will co-lead its upcoming drama series The Hunting Wives, alongside previously announced co-lead Malin Akerman. STARZ ordered eight episodes of the addictive, twisty thriller, which will begin production this Spring in Charlotte, North Carolina. Snow will portray Sophie O'Neil in the series based on the novel by May Cobb, which tells the story of Sophie and her family's move from the East Coast to deep East Texas, where she succumbs to socialite Margo Bank's (Malin Akerman) irresistible charms - and finds her life consumed by obsession, seduction, and murder. Snow can currently be seen in the 2024 Academy Award(R)-nominated live-action short film Red White & Blue. She also debuted her directorial feature debut film Parachute at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival and earned two awards including the Thunderbird Rising Special Award. Parachute is set for a 2024 release. Snow will also be seen in the upcoming feature The Good Half which debuted at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival.


Dennis Quaid

Paramount+ announced that Emmy Award and two-time Golden Globe-nominated actor Dennis Quaid (Lawmen: Bass Reeves, The Rookie, The Day After Tomorrow) will star in the new original drama series Happy Face. Quaid will play the titular role of the real-life serial killer notoriously called "Happy Face" because of the smiley faces he drew on evidence where he bragged about his crimes. He joins the cast alongside previously announced actress Annaleigh Ashford, who is set to star as his daughter, Melissa. The eight-episode first season will begin production this spring in Vancouver and premiere exclusively on Paramount+ globally in 2025. Happy Face is inspired by the true-life story of Melissa Moore; the critically acclaimed Happy Face podcast from iHeartPodcasts and Moore; and the autobiography Shattered Silence, written by Moore with M. Bridget Cook.

Happy Face for Paramount+ jumps off from Moore's true-life story. Happy Face (Quaid) is an incarcerated serial killer who also is Melissa's (Ashford) once-beloved father. After decades of no contact, he finally finds a way to force himself back into his daughter's life. In a race against the clock, Melissa must find out if an innocent man is going to be put to death for a crime her father committed. Throughout, she discovers the impact her father had on his victims' families and must face a reckoning of her own identity.

SitcomsOnline Digest: Bewitched Reboot in the Works; Paramount+ and Peacock in Merger Talks

 Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we're hearing about a Bewitched reboot, a potential merger of two streaming services, and more. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • A Bewitched reboot (or maybe reimagining is the more appropriate description) is in the works, but we don't expect it to be much like the original sitcom at all. (TV Insider)
  • Peacock and Paramount+ are rumored to be in merger talks. (Variety)
  • The CW wants to compete with the other major broadcast networks, but is that even realistic when they're relying so much on recycling series from other countries? (Deadline)
  • Although local broadcast syndication is not even close to being the powerhouse it was even ten years ago, The Conners is set for syndication in the fall. (Variety)
  • The CW is working on a Scrabble game show, which may be successful but we don't think is going to be their big hit to compete with major networks. (Deadline)
  • It should come as no surprise since it is basically one of the last successful survivors of broadcast network comedies, but ABC has renewed Abbott Elementary for another season. (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (FEBRUARY 17 - FEBRUARY 23)

  • Catchy Comedy is having a "field day" this weekend, as they celebrate Sally Field's birthday with a binge of three of her sitcoms.
  • New seasons of The Equalizer and CSI: Las Vegas arrive on CBS tomorrow night.

The show must go on! Now on Netflix. The members of the late '90s girl-group Girls5eva - Dawn, Wickie, Summer, and Gloria - have reunited and recorded a new album, Returnity, so it's time for the next logical step: a comeback tour. With no plan, tour manager, or venues secured, the ladies pile into a van and hit the great unknown, doing their damnedest to promote their album and get back on top. In the process, Girls5eva will grapple with life on the road, see their relationships tested, play a billionaire's birthday party, sow their oats, confront parents they believe held them back, cross paths with the biggest pop star on the planet, and question if they really want "the big time" again. Will Girls5eva fast-track their comeback and sell their tour documentary in the process? Or will the road destroy them? Girls5eva premieres March 14 on Netflix, with Seasons 1 & 2 plus a brand-new Season 3.

Ted is surrounded by a stellar group of characters who test their loyalties to both Ted and each other while they can't help but mix their personal and professional lives. All of this is going on while events from years ago slowly unravel that led Ted to leave behind everything and everyone he loved. Production: Scheduled to start in late March in Vancouver.
