Fleabag Team Sets New Rom-Com Thriller


Vicky Jones and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are working on a new series, billed as a “romantic comedic thriller.”

Jones and Waller-Bridge are working on the series, titled Run, under their DryWrite banner. Entertainment One (eOne) is on board the project as well. Jones and Waller-Bridge will executive produce alongside Emily Leo of Wigwam Films (Under the Shadow).

Run is about ex-lovers who made a pact 15 years ago that if they ever needed to escape life, they could send each other a simple text message—RUN—and impulsively disappear together.

Jones directed Fleabag, which Waller-Bridge created and starred in. 

Jones said: “We are thrilled to partner with the incredible team at eOne and Emily Leo to bring this badass romantic comedy thriller to life. In eOne we found a team passionate about storytelling and committed to making stand-out television for audiences around the world.”

“We are delighted to work with DryWrite on this provocative new project,” said Pancho Mansfield, eOne’s president of global scripted programming for television.“Vicky and Phoebe’s unique voices and talent for creating boundary-pushing original characters have made them bold creative and critical successes on the screen and stage. We look forward to joining forces with them on this intriguing premise that will undoubtedly capture audiences’ attention.”
