Chloe Sevigny playing a transgender hit woman in the UK drama Hit and Miss will have its Stateside premiere on July 11.

DIRECTV's Audience Network will broadcast the 6-episode drama.

The 37-year-old Sevigny, who found herself unemployed after HBO canceled Big Love last year, plays Mia in Paul Abbott's (Shameless, State of Play) high-concept series.

“Mia's life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from an ex-girlfriend dying from cancer revealing that Mia fathered a son eleven years ago,” the show's description reads. “Faced with a difficult decision, Mia becomes the guardian to a new family forcing her to mix her killer instincts with her newly developing maternal instincts.”

Sevigny's breakthrough role was playing Lana Tisdel, a woman who falls in love with Brandon Teena, a transgender man who is brutally murdered, in the 1999 biopic Boys Don't Cry. She earned her first Oscar nomination for her performance.

Hit and Miss is the first original series commissioned by recently-launched satellite channel Sky Atlantic in Britain.

Sevigny has previously talked about her lesbian fan base. And in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview, she said she was “flattered” by a recurring series of videos spoofing her fashionable image.
