Two women, a psychopathic assassin and a brilliant MI6 agent. Both tasked with the same deadly mission: Find Her. Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill 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.
Killing Eve is set to premiere on April 8th and features a cast that also includes Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Downward Dog), Kim Bodnia (The Bridge), David Haig (Penny Dreadful), Sean Delaney, and Owen McDonnell (My Mother and Other Strangers).
