DESCRIPTION:
(from DirecTV's press release, October 2011) DirecTV brings Hit and Miss to its Audience Network, which will be the exclusive U.S. broadcaster of this highly anticipated new series, created by Emmy and BAFTA Award winner Paul Abbott (State of Play, Shameless), for Sky Atlantic in the UK, and starring Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Chloë Sevigny (Big Love, Boys Don't Cry). High concept and ambitious, Hit and Miss follows Sevingy's Mia, a contract killer with a secret: she's a pre-op transsexual. 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. Faced with a difficult decision, Mia becomes the guardian to a new family, a choice that forces her to mix her killer instincts with her newly acquired maternal ones. 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.
