Based on the novellas of Luke Jennings, the series follows the intersecting story-lines of two women: Eve, "a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn't fulfill her fantasies of being a spy," and Villanelle, "a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her," a synopsis from the network said.
