I don't have Skinemax Cinemax, so this is a series I'm not at all familiar with.

Titled Femme Fatales, it's described as a "late-night anthology series about powerful, sexy and dangerous women..." who "find extraordinary ways of coping with their problems, channeling their survival instincts and bringing out their inner guile.."

It airs on Friday nights at 11PM, and from the little I've seen of it in the last few minutes, it looks like it's trying to be dark, yet funny; kind of pulpy.

Anyone following the series?

I learned earlier today that Reggie Hayes (Girlfriends) and the man you wish your man smelled like, aka Isaiah Mustafa, starred in episode 4, which aired in June. Titled Speed Date, episode 4 centers on a video game designer played by Reggie Hayes, and his first foray into the world of online dating, where he creates a fake profile, using photos of a better-looking man than he is. But he gets more than he bargained for when he finds out that his date also lied on her dating profile. Mustafa plays some kind of crime lord it seems.

Hayes' character also appears in at least one other episode; story-lines sometimes spill over.

Season 1 of Femme Fatales ends in August, and it's apparently done well for Cinemax, because they've renewed it for a second season, which will bow next year.

I also read that Vivica Fox will star in one of season 2's episodes.

If you look hard enough, I'm sure you'll find the entire episodes online somewhere; I embedded 3 clips from the aforementioned episode 4 below, which should give you a sense of what the show is like:
