Fleabag duo & eOne pair for rom-com series

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (pictured) and Vicky Jones, the duo behind UK hit show Fleabag, are developing a new romantic comedy series with Entertainment One (eOne).

The series, titled Run, will be a rom-com thriller about ex-lovers who made a pact 15 years prior to escape life’s troubles with a simple text message stating ‘run’ – resulting in pair disappearing together.

Jones wrote the series and Fleabag star Waller-Bridge will appear in a recurring role. They will produce under their DryWhite banner, which marks the first time it has produced a TV series.

The duo will executive produce alongside Emily Leo of Wigwam Films. Carolyn Newman and Polly Williams will serve as executives in charge for eOne.

Jones and Waller-Bridge received international acclaim for Fleabag, which Amazon acquired in 2016.

“We are thrilled to partner with the incredible team at eOne and Emily Leo to bring this bad-ass romantic comedy thriller to life,” said Jones.

“In eOne we found a team passionate about storytelling and committed to making standout television for audiences around the world.”

New eOne president and chief content officer Mark Gordon made the announcement at eOne’s UK Drama Preview screening event this morning in central London.
