SKY subscribers’ list of exciting shows to binge watch at home gets even more exciting as HBO GO introduces four new shows across genres—comedy, drama, and thriller—starring noted actors Hugh Jackman, Mark Ruffalo, Nicole Kidman, and Merrit Wever.
Emmy Award winner Merrit Wever plays Ruby, who decides to escape her life in the suburbs and reconnects with her old college flame, Billy, played by Domhnall Gleeson, with whom she made a pact 17 years ago.
They swore to each other that if one of them texted the word “RUN” and the other replied the same, they would drop everything and meet in the Grand Central Station and travel across America together. Other cast members include “MadMan’s” Rich Sommer, “Coroner’s” Tamara Podemski, and “I Know This Much Is True’s” Archie Panjabi. Get ready for “Run” this April 13 (Monday), 10:30AM.

He is described as a hero to parents and students alike, responsible for turning Roslyn High into one of the state’s top-achieving public schools with his partner Pam (Allison). But when an embezzlement scheme surfaces and threatens to destroy all they have built, Frank is forced to maintain order and secrecy — by whatever means necessary.
