Sky Unveils First Image Of Then You Run

News Image
Sky has unveiled the first image for Then You Run, a new Sky Original drama based on Zoran Drvenkar's thriller novel, You.

Produced by Kudos (a Banijay UK company), in association with Sky Studios and German label MadeFor, the eight-part drama will see Leah McNamara (Normal People, Danny Boy), Vivian Oparah (I May Destroy You),  Yasmin Monet Prince (Hanna, Unsaid Stories) and newcomer Isidora Fairhurst take on the roles of four friends whose dreams of the perfect summer holiday spiral into a dark and perilous adventure after they inadvertently cross paths with some of the most dangerous people in Europe. 

Adapted by Ben Chanan (Cyberbully, The Capture), Then You Run follows a close-knit group of rebellious London teenagers on a getaway in Rotterdam - but after the estranged father of Tara (McNamara) is discovered dead, they find themselves on the run across Europe with three kilos of heroin and a host of deadly criminals snapping at their heels. Leading the hunt against Tara and her childhood friends – reckless Stink (Oparah), sharp Ruth (Monet Prince) and loyal Nessi (Fairhurst) – is Tara’s uncle Reagan (Coyle), a notorious gangster haunted by his past who will stop at nothing to track down his missing cache of drugs. But Reagan isn’t the only person they should fear – because all the while a terrifying and mythical serial killer known only as 'The Traveller' draws closer, on a collision course with them all…

Joining alongside Richard Coyle (Sabrina, The Fall) as Reagan are Cillian O'Sullivan (Vikings, The Blacklist) as Orin, Francis Magee (White Lines, Britannia) as Turi, Darren Cahill (Brassic, Vikings) as Darian and Christian Rubeck (What Happened to Monday) as The Traveller.

Gabriel Silver, Director of Commissioning, Drama, Sky Studios, said: "Ben Chanan’s adaptation of Then You Run propels us into a vibrant, genre-clashing story that gleefully writes its own rules. It is fantastic to be working with Kudos again on such a unique show and I'm looking forward to this landing on Sky in 2022."

Then You Run was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky. Kara Manley and Serena Thompson are the Executive Producers for Sky Studios. The Producer is Derek Ritchie, with Karen Wilson and Katie McAleese for Kudos as Executive Producers alongside Ben Chanan. Banijay Rights is leading the international distribution.

The series will launch on Sky and streaming service NOW in 2022.
