Anne Heche has signed on to co-star on HBO's new series Hung, from creators Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson and director Alexander Payne, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The dark comedy, which was picked up for 10 episodes, centers on Ray (Thomas Jane), a well-endowed struggling high school basketball coach.

Heche will play Ray's ex-wife, who is remarried. She replaces Kristin Bauer, who played the role in the pilot. The scenes in the pilot featuring the character will be reshot.

Production on Hung is slated to begin in mid-March, with the premiere eyed for June.

Heche is pregnant with her second child and is expected to give birth in the spring.
