Chloe Sevigny playing a transgender hit
woman in the UK drama Hit & Miss released its official
trailer on Friday.
Hit & Miss is the first
original series commissioned by recently-launched satellite channel
Sky Atlantic in Britain. It will have its US premiere 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.”
After the release of several teaser
clips, an official trailer was released on Friday. In it, we see Mia
telling a handsome man, “I'm not like other women,” and the man
responding, “That's why I like you.”
After a man says, “You're like a
machine, Mia,” we see the contract killer knocking off three men.
