BBC AMERICA released the poster and first teaser trailer today for Killing Eve, the thriller starring Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) and Jodie Comer (The White Princess), giving a peek into the warped relationship between Eve (Oh) and Villanelle (Comer).
Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Based on the novellas by Luke Jennings and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.
Co-starring in the series alongside Oh and Comer are Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter, True Blood) who plays Carolyn Martens, David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Penny Dreadful) as Eve’s colleague Bill, and Kim Bodnia (The Bridge) as Konstantin. Further cast includes Darren Boyd (Frank Haleton), Sean Delaney (Kenny Stowton), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Elena Felton) and Owen McDonnell (Niko).
