Sky Comedy has released the first trailer for new half-hour comedy series Run, from Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Vicky Jones starring Merritt Wever (Godless, Unbelievable) 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), with whom she 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, Solo: A Star Wars Story) 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 (The Good Wife) as Fiona, Billy’s former PA.

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.

Jones and Waller-Bridge are founders of the award-winning 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.

Run‘ premieres Wednesday, 15th April 2020 at 9pm on Sky Comedy in the UK and on NOW TV. For those of you in the US, you can catch the series from Sunday, April 12, 2020, at 10:30pm on HBO.
