BBC + HBO Europe pick up Killing Eve by Luke Jennings & adapted by Phoebe Waller-Bridge 

de0bb56d90c9ff913a251ab77cbda32f.jpg‘Endeavor Content has racked up international sales on “Killing Eve,” the Phoebe Waller-Bridge spy drama starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer.

The BBC has already acquired the buzzy series for the U.K. ahead of its U.S. bow on BBC America this coming Sunday. The latest pre-sales include HBO Europe, which has taken it for Central and Eastern Europe, Iberia, and Scandinavia. Other early buyers include Israeli pay-TV platform Hot and Kiwi pubcaster TVNZ.

The eight-part series was produced by the U.K.’s Sid Gentle Films and is based on the Luke Jennings novellas. It follows a bored M15 operative (Oh) who is assigned to tracking a prolific and enigmatic female assassin, Villanelle (Comer). “Fleabag” writer and star Waller-Bridge has infused the series, which was shot across Europe, with her trademark dark humor, alongside the usual action and intrigue elements of a cat-and-mouse spy drama.

The show is in competition at the inaugural Canneseries event, which kicks off in Cannes later this week ahead of the MipTV market, where Endeavor will continue the sales effort.’
