    Killing Eve stars Golden Globe®, Sag® and Critics’ Choice Award-winner Sandra Oh, well-known for her leading role in Grey’s Anatomy, and Emmy® and Bafta-winner Jodie Comer. Nominated for the Best Drama Television series at the Golden Globe® Awards, two years in a row, the broadcast of season one will lead directly into the second and third seasons of this gripping production.

    Based on the novels by Luke Jennings and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve centres on two distinctly different women. Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her.

    Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse. This series, which combines brutal mischief making and pathos, is filled with sharp humor, originality and high stakes action.
