‘Hit and Miss’ attracts U.S. nets

BSkyB show stars Chloe Sevigny as hitwoman

LONDON — U.K. TV drama “Hit and Miss,” starring Chloe Sevigny as a hitwoman about to undergo a sex change, is attracting interest from U.S. webs.

Show is the first original U.K. drama commissioned by BSkyB’s upstart channel Sky Atlantic and is created by “Shameless” writer Paul Abbott.

BSkyB said they were “talking to a number of networks” about the skein, but indicated that nothing had yet been confirmed.

In the show Sevigny plays Mia, a contract killer with a secret: she’s a pre-op transsexual.

“Hit and Miss” embraces such themes as family, sexual identity and murder.

Project is scripted by short-film writer and director Sean Conway, and is his TV debut.

“Hit and Miss” is the latest program to arise from the development deal between FremantleMedia Enterprises, the commercial arm of FremantleMedia, and Abbott’s AbbottVision.

The series will bow to the international market at this fall’s Mipcom TV mart in Cannes as part of FME’s drama slate.
