The new drama series, Siren awakens our fear of the deep blue sea by addressing the mythology surrounding mermaids. The mythical beings often depicted in popular culture are often shy but enchanting half-human, half-fish creatures that would risk exposing their secret existence to save drowning sailors in a stormy sea.
In mythology, however, these aquatic beings are far from benign, and would prey on hapless seafarers by luring them with their hypnotic song. It’s these vicious mermaids of ancient times that are wreaking havoc not just in the water but also on land in the newest and exciting American drama series Siren on Blue Ant Entertainment, channel 473 on unifi TV.
Legend has it that mermaids once lived on what is now Bristol Cove, a quiet coastal town on the Pacific Northwest. The town folklore would soon prove more than a fairy-tale with the sudden appearance of a young woman who calls herself Ryn. The mysterious visitor catches the eye of local marine biologist Ben Pownall, whose interest on the strange woman arouses suspicion from fellow marine biologist, Maddie Bishop.
Others, like deep-sea fisherman Xander McClure, are also on a quest to uncover the truth beneath the waves, while town eccentric Helen Hawkins seems to know more about the local legend than what Bristol Cove has been led to believe.
Tension however rises between the denizens of land and sea as predatory mermaids seek to claim their birth right.
Catch Siren first and exclusive on every Monday at 9:45P.M. (8:45pm) on Blue Ant Entertainment, channel 473 on unifi TV.
