at . Comments

Killing Eve may well be the one show to watch in 2018. 

It stars Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy) and Jodie Comer (The White Princess).

Killing Eve

In short, the show will have one of the most talented casts around, but what's it about?

The series focuses on Eve, an MI-5 officer who is less than enthused about the trajectory her life has taken. 

She may have the money, but she most certainly does not have the happiness. Her ultimate career goal is to become a spy, but will she ever get there?

Enter Villanelle, a merciless killer who loves the fact that her job comes with a lot of benefits. 

Villanelle Takes Aim

Eve is tasked with hunting down Villanelle, but there are a lot of twists in the tale, and the two women's game of cat-and-mouse will find them racing across Europe. 

Which one of them will come out on top?

BBC America has announced the series will bow Sunday, April 8 at 8/7c. 

Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Downward Dog), Fiona Shaw (True Blood), Kim Bodnia (The Bridge), David Haig (Penny Dreadful), Sean Delaney and Owen McDonnell will co-star on the television adaptation of Luke Jennings' novellas. 

Sandra Oh on Killing Eve

“In Killing Eve, a genius bunch of women behind and in front of the camera transcend the predictable with this funny and heart-stopping twisted cat, and mouse thriller,” BBCA President Sarah Barnett said in a statement.

“From creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge – with remarkable performances from Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer – Killing Eve stands out in a sea of scripted stories as refreshingly entertaining and great fun.”
