The trailer for Phoebe Waller-Bridge's latest (master)piece has just dropped.
The award-winning writer and actress is bringing us more of her sharp wit in Run, a comedic rom-com thriller that’s coming to HBO and Sky Atlantic in April.
The series was created by Waller-Bridge and her Killing Eve co-writer Vicky Jones, who also directed the stage adaptation of Fleabag in 2013.
Run will star Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars) as Billy Johnson, a life-guru and Merrit Wever (Marriage Story) as Ruby Dixie as a woman looking to escape her humdrum life.
Ruby gets a text from Billy, her former college boyfriend – with whom she made a pact 17 years ago – inviting her to leave her current life behind and reunite with him in New York.
According to the pact, that if either of them texted the word 'run' and the other one text the same back, they’d meet in New York’s Grand Central Station and start a cross-country trip of America.
And that's exactly what they did.
Waller-Bridge herself will appear in the show as Laurel, who meets Billy and Ruby during their travels.
Rich Sommer (Mad Men) plays Ruby’s husband Laurence, Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) plays Billy’s former assistant, Fiona and Tamara Podemski (Coroner) will play a police detective with the incredible name Babe Cloud.
