Chloe Sevigny playing a transgender hit
woman in the UK drama Hit & Miss will have its U.S.
premier on DIRECTV's Audience Network on Wednesday, July 11.
In the 6-episode series from creator
Paul Abbott (Shameless, State of Play), the 37-year-old
Sevigny, who found herself unemployed after HBO canceled Big Love
last year, plays Mia.
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.”
A teaser clip for the high-concept
series released this week mixes images of Mia singing a lullaby as
she sits on the edge of a child's bed and with those of the contract
killer knocking off three men. (The video is embedded in the right

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