A trailer for the UK drama Hit and Miss featuring Chloe Sevigny as a transgender hit woman was released on Friday.

The 6-episode series will have its U.S. premiere on DIRECTV's Audience Network on July 11.

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.

In the 30-second trailer, Mia is seen seductively applying lipstick in a mirror as a sensuous female version of James Brown's 1966 single It's a Man's Man's Man's World is played: “This is a man's world, it's a man's world; But it would be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.

According to the show's description, Mia finds out that she fathered a son eleven years ago and her former girlfriend is dying from cancer.

“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.”

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

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.

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.
