Stage and screen star Lily Rabe will lead an upcoming pilot for TNT currently titled Deadlier Than the Male, Deadline reports.

Rabe will take on the role of Emma, a woman given a new identity upon her release from prison in order to protect her from the killer with whom she once had a close connection. The series will follow her and two other characters—each with an unraveling and troubled past.

Deadliner Than the Male, written by Harriet Warner, will also feature Bloodline’s Enrique Murciano.

A 2011 Tony nominee for The Merchant of Venice, Rabe is known to many for her various roles on American Horror Story. Her additional stage credits include Seminar, The American Plan, Heartbreak House, and Steel Magnolias on Broadway, as well as As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, and Cymbeline at the Public’s Shakespeare in the Park.

Additionally, Rabe recently appeared in a reading of Hamish Linklater’s new play, Paris, Actors, as part of the Readings Festival at Vassar’s Powerhouse season.
