Fox Showcase to screen Run from April (Updated)

Run, a brand-new comedy thriller from the powerhouse creative team of Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Vicky Jones will screen on Fox Showcase next month.

Written by Jones, this 7 x 30-minute comedy series follows on from Jones’ and Waller-Bridge’s hugely successful collaborations on Fleabag and Killing Eve.

Starring Emmy winner Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) and Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Run tells the story of 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) 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.

 Run is an HBO series and is exclusive in Australia to Foxtel. The series will stream on Foxtel and screen on FOX SHOWCASE on Thursdays at 8.30pm from April 17.

April 22 Update Foxtel has advised the series will now screen Thursdays at 8.30pm AEST from May 7.
