Alan Ball's upcoming Cinemax drama Banshee has cast Ryann Shane and Ben Cross.

The ten-episode series is executive produced by True Blood and Six Feet Under creator Ball, alongside former House exec Greg Yaitanes.

TV Line reports that Shane (Lights Out) will play the rebellious teenage daughter to Ivana Milicevic and Rus Blackwell's characters, while Cross (Star Trek) is taking the role of ruthless Ukranian gangster Mr Rabbit.

Written by authors Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler, Banshee will follow an ex-convict called Lucas (Antony Starr) who assumes the identity of a murdered sheriff in the Pennsylvanian town of Banshee.

Several other cast members have already been announced, including Demetrius Grosse (Justified), Ulrich Thomsen (The Thing) and Matt Servitto (Harry's Law).

The show has been picked up for a full season and will begin shooting this spring, to debut on Cinemax in 2013.
