Merritt Wever is set to star in a new romantic comedy thriller for HBO titled Run.
The new show is from Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her frequent collaborator Vicky Jones.
Written by Jones, Run centers on Ruby (Wever), a woman living a humdrum existence who one day gets a text inviting her to fulfill a youthful pact, promising true love and self-reinvention, by stepping out of her life to take a journey with her oldest flame.
Wever’s Ruby Dixie is an American family woman who functions like clockwork, but feels like a fraud. Having packed away her younger self for the sake of other people, she is finally taking steps to reinvent her path.
