Gleeson and Wever Make a Pact in HBO’s Run Teaser

-

HBO has revealed the Run teaser, which gives you a first look at the upcoming, half-hour comedy series written and produced by Vicky Jones. The series will premiere on Sunday, April 12 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT).

Run follows a woman whose humdrum life is thrown upside down when she receives a text from her college sweetheart inviting her to drop everything and meet him in New York to fulfill the pact they made 17 years earlier.

The series will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.

Starring Emmy winner Merritt Wever (Godless, Nurse Jackie) and Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Ex Machina), Run is a romantic comedic thriller about a woman, Ruby Richardson (Wever) who walks away from her ordinary life in the suburbs to revisit her past with her college boyfriend, Billy Johnson (Gleeson).

Ruby and Billy made a pact 17 years prior that if either one of them texted the word “RUN” and the other replied with the same, they would drop everything and meet in Grand Central Station and travel across America together.

Recurring guest stars for season one include Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) as Laurel, a woman who Ruby and Billy meet on their journey; Rich Sommer (Mad Men) as Laurence, Ruby’s husband; Tamara Podemski (Coroner) as police detective Babe Cloud and Archie Panjabi (HBO’s upcoming I Know This Much Is True, The Good Wife) as Fiona, Billy’s former PA.

The series is executive produced by Vicky Jones, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Jenny Robins, Kate Dennis, Emily Leo and Oliver Roskill of Wigwam Films. Run is produced by eOne, the studio behind acclaimed HBO series Sharp Objects. kExecutive producers Vicky Jones and Phoebe Waller-Bridge founded the DryWrite Theatre Company.

In 2013, Jones directed Waller-Bridge’s stage production Fleabag, which was later adapted into an Emmy, BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning television series. Jones also served as a writer on Killing Eve, the Emmy-nominated drama series, which was created by Waller-Bridge.
