HBO’s new comedy series Run will be heading to Sky Comedy and NOW TV.
Written and produced by Vicky Jones (Fleabag), Run follows Merritt Wever (Unbelievable) as Ruby Richardson, a woman living a mundane life in the suburbs who drops everything upon receiving a text to fulfil a pact made with her ex-boyfriend seventeen years earlier.
Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina) plays Billy Johnson, Ruby’s college boyfriend with whom she made the pact that if he texts her the word “run” and she replies with the same, the pair will leave their old lives behind and meet in Grand Central Station to travel across America together.
The eight-part series will see Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) star as Laurel, a woman the pair meet on their travels, while Rich Sommer (Mad Men) will play Ruby’s husband Laurence, and Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) will play Billy’s former PA, Fiona.
The comedy thriller has been executive produced by Vicky Jones, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jenny Robins, Kate Dennis, Emily Leo and Oliver Roskill.
Run will start on Sky Comedy and NOW TV on Wednesday 15th April.
