BBC AMERICA earned eight Emmy® nominations for its critical and fan favorite Killing Eve, highly-acclaimed drama Orphan Black, and groundbreaking series Blue Planet II.

Sarah Barnett, BBC AMERICA President, commented, “Our gratitude to the phenomenal artists behind Killing Eve, Orphan Black and Blue Planet II is huge. We couldn’t ask for a better talent line-up at BBCA than Sandra Oh, Tatiana Maslany, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sir David Attenborough and the creative teams behind them. We’re so grateful to the Television Academy for these nominations.”  

 This is Killing Eve star and associate producer Sandra Oh’s sixth Emmy® nomination – and her first as lead actress – and the series’ executive producer and lead writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s first nomination.

 Sally Woodward Gentle, executive producer of Killing Eve, said, “I am over the moon and feeling a little bit nauseous with excitement about the nominations for the extraordinary Sandra Oh and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Extraordinary women in a show of many extraordinary women. And men, of course. We are delighted that the Emmys have recognized our wild, rather weird British show.”

 Sandra Oh, star and associate producer, Killing Eve, commented, “I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination. I am thrilled for Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s nomination and for the entire cast/crew of Killing Eve. I share this moment with my community. P.S., I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied.”

 Killing Eve’s executive producer and lead writer, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, commented, “This is the most incredible news. Thank you to the entire Killing Eve team, cast, fans and everyone who voted for us! I can’t. Get. Over. It. A HUGE and special shout out to the incredible Luke Jennings who wrote the original novellas. Thank god he has a thing for fictional murderous women.” 

 

Killing Eve capped its incredible first season with an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos – something no other show on television has accomplished in more than a decade. The series was commissioned in 2016 for BBC AMERICA by President and GM Sarah Barnett, and Nena Rodrigue, EVP of Original Programming, Acquisitions and Production; executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Colin Wratten produced and Sandra Oh served as associate producer. The series is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd and distributed by Endeavor Content. Season two was picked up before the first season premiered on BBCA, and will begin production this summer.
