“Killing Eve” Promo Teases Killer vs. Spy

The first trailer has been released for “Killing Eve,” BBC America’s upcoming thriller series which premieres April 8th and stars both Jodie Comer and “Grey’s Anatomy” alum Sandra Oh.

Comer plays Villanelle, a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries of her violent job. Oh plays Eve, a whip-smart pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. The two soon go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

Fiona Shaw, David Haig, Kim Bodnia, Darren Boyd, Sean Delaney, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Owen McDonnell co-star in the series based on the novellas by Luke Jennings and written by “Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Waller-Bridge and Vicky Jones are producing the series and have just signed on for another thriller series titled “Run” which has been set up at eOne reports Deadline. That follows a pair of ex-lovers who made a pact 15 years ago that if they ever needed to escape life, they could send each other a simple text message – ‘RUN’ – and impulsively disappear together.
