The Lady Mary Crawley depicter on the period drama will play a thief and a con artist in drama pilot 'Good Behavior'.

AceShowbiz - %cMichelle Dockery% didn't waste time to find a new TV gig. While "Downton Abbey" has not wrapped up the filming of the final season yet, the British beauty has landed a role in TNT's drama pilot "Good Behavior".

Based on the Letty Dobesh books by Blake Crouch, the drama is written by Crouch and Chad Hodge. Hodge and Crouch, who also penned the book series on which "Wayward Pines" is based, will additionally serve as executive producers for "Good Behavior".

Dockery will star as Letty Dobesh, a thief and a con artist whose life is always one bad decision from implosion - which is exactly how she likes it. Fresh out of prison, Letty is attempting to stay afloat, but when she overhears a hit man being hired to kill a man's wife, she sets out to derail the job, putting her on a collision course with the killer and entangling them in a dangerous and seductive relationship.

Dockery is currently filming the sixth and last installment of "Downton Abbey". Should "Good Behavior" get a series order, it will mark her first regular TV gig post-Julian Fellowes' hit period drama series.
