Canal + reels in Waller-Bridge’s Killing Eve

French pay-TV service Canal + is the latest to buy into Phoebe Waller-Bridge drama, Killing Eve, which has been the most talked about title at MIPTV this year.

The female-led spy thriller, fronted by Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, premiered on BBC America this week as the show’s stars appeared in Cannes for the Canneseries drama festival.

Prior to this, the show’s distributor, Endeavour Content, had already made a deal for it to play in the UK on BBC One and online channel BBC Three.

Last week, HBO Europe also acquired the show alongside Israeli pay-TV platform HOT and New Zealand’s TVNZ.

“It has been incredible to see the reception we’ve had for Killing Eve internationally, both following BBC America’s premier and at Canneseries,” said Gary Marenzi, head of entertainment sales and partnerships for Endeavor Content.

“There is an overwhelming sense that this project has come along at just the right time, and it proudly showcases the work of immensely talented women both in front of and behind the camera. We’re thrilled to welcome Canal+ to our growing team of international broadcast partners.”
