Endeavor Content/IMG, the scripted television and feature film financing, development and sales division of Endeavor (formerly WME I IMG), has secured sales in key international territories for spy-action thriller series Killing Eve, starring Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy, Catfight) and Jodie Comer (Doctor Foster, Thirteen).

Killing Eve centres on two women; Eve (Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (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.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge serves as lead writer and executive producer. Sally Woodward Gentle and Lee Morris are executive producers, with Colin Wratten serving as producer and Sandra Oh serving as associate producer.

“Killing Eve is original, sharp and grippingly adapted by Phoebe Waller-Bridge”, said Gary Marenzi, Head of Entertainment Sales and Partnerships for Endeavor Content. “It’s clear from our growing list of global partners on this show that audiences are hungry for fresh and subversive storytelling, and we’re proud to have championed this project from its inception.”
