Killing Eve shouldn't have been eligible for Britain's BAFTAs because it was commissioned by an American network (BBC America) and it was first aired on American TV. Yet the BAFTAs bent its rules to honor Killing Eve due to its UK connection, from creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge to its London setting to its British producer. "Once upon a time, there was a clear divide between international and domestic productions, with just a few slightly blurred lines — PBS and WGBH with its Masterpiece projects, and HBO with its occasional U.K. co-productions," says Michael Schneider. "But even with those shows, it was usually clear that the U.S. partners were in on the ground floor and that these weren’t just acquisitions; U.S. programmers rarely acquired foreign productions — they remade them for domestic audiences. Now, with so much content flowing both ways, it’s often hard to tell what originated overseas before arriving here and what was jointly developed as an international co-production from the beginning."
