Kevin Bacon & Glenn Howerton Join Netflix Limited Series ‘Sirens’

Kevin Bacon (City on a Hill) and Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) have boarded Netflix’s dark comedy limited series Sirens, headlined by Julianne Moore, Meghann Fahy and Milly Alcock.

Created by Molly Smith Metzler (Maid) based on her play Elemeno Pea and executive produced by LuckyChap, Sirens revolves around three women, Devon, Simone and Michaela. Devon (Fahy) thinks her sister Simone (Alcock) has a really creepy relationship with her new boss, the enigmatic socialite Michaela Kell (Moore). Michaela’s cult-ish life of luxury is like a drug to Simone, and Devon has decided it’s time for an intervention. Told over the course of one explosive weekend at The Kells’ lavish beach estate, Sirens is described as an incisive, sexy, and darkly funny exploration of women, power, and class.
