TVLine Items: Michelle Dockery's TNT Pilot, You're the Worst Teaser and More

Michelle Dockery Good Behavior

What would Lady Mary Crawley think of Michelle Dockery‘s new TV gig?

The Downton Abbey actress is set to star in Good Behavior, TNT’s newly ordered drama pilot from writer Chad Hodge (Wayward Pines), our sister site Deadline reports.

Based on a series of books by Blake Crouch, Good Behavior centers on Letty Dobesh (Dockery), a thief and con artist who is fresh out of prison. When she overhears a hitman being hired to kill a man’s wife, Letty sets out to derail the job and becomes entangled with the killer.

Dockery is currently filming Downton Abbey‘s sixth and final season.
