An actress best known as one of the sister wives on HBO’s "Big Love" will be returning to television in a new drama series on DirecTV’s Audience Network called "Hit and Miss." Chloe Sevigny will play a transgender contract killer in the show, reports UPI.

Created by Paul Abbott, who also conceived "Shameless" and "State of Play," "Hit and Miss" focuses on Sevigny’s character, Mia.

According to the production notes, "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 11 years ago. 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’ tells the story of a lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family and how all of their lives will be dramatically changed forever."

The show debuts July 11, following the premiere of the fifth and final season of "Damages," the Glenn Close legal drama, which shifted to the satellite channel after its run on FX.

  1. Curious that this story is phrased in an implied future tense, as if the production weren’t already complete and didn’t premiere a few hours ago in the UK.
