Tamara Podemski to Run
(November 18, 2019 – Toronto, ON) Indigenous Canadian actor Tamara Podemski just might have a gig in a new series from the creator of the hit Sandra Oh series Killing Eve. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s new series, titled Run, is a bit of everything but being roughly specific it’s a comedic-thriller, similar to Killing Eve which dealt with a hired assassin with a strange approach to her profession. When we write “just might” that means Podemski has joined the cast to shoot a pilot episode.
The pilot usually ends up as the first episode in a series if the network picks up the project. In this case the network is HBO. Merritt Wever will play the central character who takes a journey with an old romantic interest. Domhnall Gleeson co-stars. Tamara Podemski has been cast to play a character named Babe, who is a lonely police detective with a soft-spoken style and a dry sense of humour who lands her first big case.
As with all pilots, the hope is it produces a contract for the first season. Since this is always an iffy proposition, no production date or release date have been announced for Run. Podemski has a role in the 2019 Atom Egoyan feature Guest of Honour.
