Former Men in Trees star Anne Heche is returning to the small screen in HBO's Hung.

The dark comedy, which stars Thomas Jane as a well-endowed struggling high school basketball coach, was recently picked up for 10 episodes. Heche will play Jane's ex-wife, who is now remarried, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Heche, who is due to give birth to her second child this spring, replaces Kristin Bauer, who played the role in the pilot. Bauer's scenes will be reshot.

Production is set to begin in mid-March, and the premiere is tentatively set for June.
