Flush with awards success and general kudos for everything she has a hand in, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been busy working on other projects, including backing regular collaborator Vicky Jones on HBO/Sky Comedy series Run, which has its first teaser online.

Run tells the story of Ruby Richardson (Merritt Wever) who leaves her ordinary, humdrum life in the suburbs to meet her college sweetheart, Billy Johnson (Domhnall Gleeson), in New York City to fulfill a pact they made 17 years earlier. The rules of the pact were pretty simple: 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 to travel across America together.

Waller-Bridge will pop up on screen as an enigmatic character, while the cast also includes Rich Sommer, Archie Panjabi and Tamara Podemski. The show kicks off on HBO on 12 April before heading to Sky Atlantic on 15 April.

And talking of shows that have Waller-Bridge DNA in them, but don’t see her directly running things: Killing Eve has announced a date for series 3 to arrive. Except we have to call it Season 3, because this date only applies to US viewers watching via AMC and BBC America. The show will return, with its latest head writer, Suzanne Heathcote in charge, on 26 April. As for UK audiences? We’ll still awaiting a solid date…

Some new photos from this next season are also online…
