Elisabeth Moss To Star In Neo-Noir Anthology Series Black Match For Hulu

In the wake of the success of The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss has started crafting several new and interesting genre projects, including what sounds like a nifty little piece of anthology television that could see one of the best actresses working today taking on Femme Fatales and a neo-noir Los Angeles.

It’s being reported that Moss is developing an anthology titled Black Match for Hulu, in which she will star. The series is described as a psychosexual neo-noir thriller set in modern-day Los Angeles and comes from an original script written by Ian McCulloch. Mike Barker is attached to direct the pilot, who previously directed Moss in twelve episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, and has shows like Fargo and Outlander on his resume.

Above Suspicion: Emilia Clarke Stars In True-Crime Thriller

The Game of Thrones actress stars in the new film based on Joe Sharkey’s 1993 non-fiction book of the same name, which came from a true story. Now, Australia’s Madman Films has debuted the official international trailer for the new true-crime thriller Above Suspicion, the latest film from the director Phillip Noyce.

Clarke stars as Susan Smith, an impoverished woman, who is living in an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. She agrees to be a police informant to make some extra cash, providing information on a local bank robber. When she is matched-up with FBI agent Mark Putnam (Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston), the two become romantically involved. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it is a ticket to disaster for both of them. This scandal shook the foundations of the nation’s top law enforcement agency, ending in the first-ever conviction of an FBI agent for murder.

If you’re a fan of true crime thrillers, check out the trailer for Above Suspicion below:

Cinemax’s Femme Fatales: 212 – Libra

A sexy superhero, an undercover cop, a mafia boss fighting for control, and good ol’ Cuesta Verde – it looks like Femme Fatales is going out with a bang (I apologize for using the same joke from a previous review but I can’t resist). The final episode of season 2 has aired and it’s called Libra. It is one of the more ambitious episodes of the series so they decided to make it a special hour long episode to close on a high note. They brought in some old and new friends to cap off the season and have succeeded in making it a successful send off which makes us want more of Libra.

Cinemax’s Femme Fatales: 211 – Bad Christmas/Hell Hath No Furies

It’s Christmas in Cuesta Verde, so that means we got some gifts for you today! In the latest installment of Femme Fatales, it looks like we are getting a bit old school up in this joint. From the get go, you’ll notice the look and feel to be a bit different. That’s right boys and girls, we are seeing Femme Fatales in a new manner: Grindhouse style. And guess what people, it works like a charm and makes you wonder why didn’t they get to this sooner?

Cinemax’s Femme Fatales: 210 – One Man’s Death

Man, it sucks to be an assistant district attorney in Cuesta Verde. That’s the impression I got when I viewed One Man’s Death. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it means you will have unrealistic sexual relations with the female population of the city, all of who were apparently models in their past life, but it will probably mean you are a corrupt son of a bitch and will face certain death, hence the title of the episode. So, someone’s love dies and it’s up to the lady friend to get to the bottom of what seems to be foul play. But how do you punch up that classic story a little? You involve two lady friends, duh.

Cinemax’s Femme Fatales: 209 – Crazy Mary

It is always a bit alarming when the Femme Fatales beginning pops up only to be followed by a close up of an engagement ring and sunny music accompanying a proposal. It was a little off putting because I did not expect it. Until she asked after the proposal what could make the moment more perfect. Then he talked about multiple orgasms. Yep. Came to the right place. (Seriously no pun intended.)

Cinemax’s Femme Fatales: 208 – Jailbreak

I like continuity in my serialized shows. I feel it harkens back to the comic books where everything is set in the same universe, and that you need to invest into the characters and the environment because you never know where they might pop up again. Obviously, in the Femme Fatales universe, everything is beginning to really take shape in how they tie together. We are starting to get callbacks from previous episodes or seasons and I dig it. The current episode of Jailbreak reflects that.
