Based on the short stories by Luke Jennings, BBCA’s Kill Eve focuses on two women; Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-wise security guard whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasy of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is an elegant, talented killer who holds on to the luxuries that her violent job offers. Kill Eve overturns the typical spy thriller when these two extremely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, battle each other in an epic game of cat and mouse.
