Bono's daughter cast in new TV series

The daughter of U2 rocker Bono, Eve Hewson, has landed a role in Steven Soderbergh's upcoming TV series The Knick.

Hewson, 22, has been cast alongside Clive Owen in the 10-part show, which is based in 1900s New York. It will centre around groundbreaking surgeons and staff at Knickerbocker Hospital during a period of high mortality rates and a lack of antibiotics.

Kristen Stewart's ex-boyfriend Michael Angarano has also joined the line-up, which includes Andre Holland and Sinister's Juliet Rylance, according to Deadline.com.

Production on the program, which will air on America's Cinemax cable network, is due to begin in late September.

Hewson's previous credits include the 2011 film This Must Be the Place, starring Sean Penn as a retired rock star living in Dublin.
