“I am quivering with excitement about working with Sandra! I have been a huge fan of hers forever and am pinching myself that she is playing our Eve,” Waller-Bridge, who will serve as showrunner and executive producer, said. “She is going to be so badass in this role,” Oh will play Eve, a bored security service operative whose job is not as exciting as she thought. She gets involved in a cat-and-mouse chase with a serial killer Villanelle.
