From multi-BAFTA winning writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) the eight-part series follows Eve (Sandra Oh), a bored MI5 security officer whose desk job does not fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. That is until she’s tasked with tracking down fearsome assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer), throwing them into a cat-and-mouse game that turns the traditional spy-thriller on its head.
The all-star cast includes Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter), David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral), and Kim Bodnia (The Bridge).
The series is a Sid Gentle Films Ltd production for BBC America, and was acquired from Endeavor Content. It will premiere on BBC One and will be made available as a box set on BBC.
