Legend has it that coastal town Bristol Cove on the Pacific Northwest was once home to mermaids. Folklore proves more than fiction when a mysterious young woman who calls herself Ryn (Eline Powell) suddenly appears one night. The strange visitor soon catches the interests of local marine biologist Ben Pownell (Alex Roe). Together, along with Ben's fellow marine biologist Maddie Bishop (Fola Evans-Akingbola), deep-sea fisherman Xander McClure (Ian Verdun), town eccentric and folklore expert Helen Hawkins (Rena Owen), and another mysterious woman who calls herself Donna (Sibongile Mlambo) unravel tensions between the denizens of land and sea as predatory mermaids seek to claim their birthright. Catch the two-hour special premiere of Siren on Monday, 4 June, at 8:45 P.M. first and exclusive on Blue Ant Entertainment.

Siren has reached over 4 million views since its premiere in the U.S. alone, and has been well received by the audience and critics alike. American digital media and entertainment company for women, Refinery29, described Siren as "gripping and original," while one of Florida's largest newspapers, Tampa Bay Times, says that the show is "worth the deep dive in." Cinemablend, internet's go-to source of entertainment news, praised Powell as "a standout as Ryn," and television news source website TV Fanatic said that "Siren is what television has been missing."

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean franchise follows the adventures of the eccentric Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) involving magical treasures, supernatural creatures, former lovers, and even pirate mutiny. In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, the governor's daughter, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), has been captured by Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Jack's traitorous former first mate who captains the cursed Black Pearl. Together with Elizabeth's lover, William Turner (Orlando Bloom), Jack sets sail to save the damsel in distress and reclaim what the mutinous Barbossa has stolen from him.

The first four movies [Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl; Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest; Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End; and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides] will air all Thursdays of June on Blue Ant Entertainment.
