True Blood creator Alan Ball's new Cinemax series Banshee has cast three regulars.

Matt Servitto, Trieste Dunn and Daniel Ross Owens will all star in the 10-part series, according to Deadline.

Banshee - written by Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler - will focus on a criminal with martial arts expertise who poses as a murdered sheriff to dish out his own brand of justice.

Harry's Law actor Servitto will play long-serving sheriff's deputy Brock Lotus, while Dunn - who has appeared on Brothers & Sisters and Fringe - will portray spirited female deputy Siobhan Kelly.

Owens will star as Dan Kendall, a young idealist who becomes the mayor of Banshee.

Greg Yaitanes - who serves as an executive producer and director on House - will helm the Banshee series premiere.

The show was picked up for a full series in January and will begin shooting this spring in and around Charlotte, North Carolina. It will debut on Cinemax in 2013.
