Sandra Oh fans, set your DVRs for Sunday, April 8, when her new show will premiere on BBC America. Everyone’s favorite sarcastic, hilarious doctor from “Grey’s Anatomy” is finally returning to our televisions, this time in BBC’s “Killing Eve.”
“Killing Eve” is a dramatic television thriller that is based on the book “Codename Villanelle” by Luke Jennings. The book has been adapted for television by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also wrote “Fleabag,” which earned several awards and nominations, including BAFTA TV Award nominations for Best Writer: Comedy and Best Scripted Comedy.
Starring alongside Oh in “Killing Eve” is Jodie Comer, who viewers will recognize from shows such as “The White Princess” and “Doctor Foster.”
