We already got the opportunity to see Killing Eve a little while back and news that it’s now officially coming to all your screens is very welcome news. What is it exactly you might ask…well Killing Eve is an award winning spy-thriller series that is set to premiere on Fox (DSTV 125 and StarSat 131), for the first time in Mzansi, on Wednesdays at 20:45 CAT from 6 May.
Killing Eve stars Golden Globe®, SAG® and Critics’ Choice Award winner Sandra Oh, well known for her leading role in the very popular Grey’s Anatomy, and Emmy® and BAFTA winner Jodie Comer. Nominated for the Best Drama Television series at the Golden Globe® Awards two years in a row, the great news is the broadcast of season one will lead directly into the second and third seasons of this gripping production.
Based on the novels by Luke Jennings and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve centers on two distinctly different women. Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her.
Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse. This series, which combines brutal mischief making and pathos, is filled with sharp humor, originality and high stakes action.
This fast-paced series is a character study on two lives, two women and their circumstances, their homes, their wants, their fears and what keeps them from ending it all. It’s just that one happens to be an assassin and the other a spy.
One definitely worth your time trust us. Mark the date, Wednesdays at 20:45 CAT from 6 May on Fox (DSTV 125 and StarSat 131).
