Killing Eve [new] (8 pm, BBC America)
The next series from Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is very
different from her previous, critically acclaimed comedy. For one thing,
it's not a comedy, for the most part; it's a tense, twisted,
action-filled thriller pitting a normally desk-bound MI5 agent (Sandra
Oh, in her first regular role since leaving Grey's Anatomy), who is
bored with her job, against a female assassin (Jodie Comer, The White
Princess). The eight-episode series (which has already been renewed for
a 2nd season) is based on the books by Luke Jennings.
