Academy Award nominated and Golden Globe winning actress Chloe Sevigny stars in HIT AND MISS, Sky Atlantic’s first original drama, which is created by one of the country's most respected screenwriters, Paul Abbott.
Sevigny plays Mia, a contract killer with a big secret: she's a pre-op transsexual. Mia’s life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from her ex, Wendy, who reveals that she's dying from cancer. And also that Mia had fathered a son, 11-year-old Ryan.
Travelling to a tiny village in West Yorkshire to see the boy, the assassin then discovers the rest of Wendy's brood...
Ambitious and high concept, HIT AND MISS is a six-part drama about family, sexual identity and killing, as it follows Mia’s attempts to mix her killer instincts with her new maternal ones. A lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family dramatically changes all of their lives forever.
Created by Paul Abbott and written by Sean Conway, Hit and Miss is a Red Production Company/AbbottVision co-production for Sky Atlantic HD.
Executive Produced by Paul Abbott, Nicola Shindler and Huw Kennair-Jones. Produced by Juliet Charlesworth and directed by Hettie Macdonald (Eps 1-3) & Sheree Folkson (Eps 4-6). The six part series was commissioned by Elaine Pyke and will exclusively air on Sky Atlantic HD and Sky Atlantic in 2012.
