VIDEO: BBC America Releases New Trailer for KILLING EVE Starring Sandra Oh

by Macon Prickett - Mar 16, 2018

BBC AMERICA released a new 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. Killing Eve premieres Sunday, April 8th at 8/7c.
