Coroner’s Tamara Podemski to co-star in HBO comedic thriller pilot

The actress will join Merritt Wever and Domhall Gleeson in Run, a romantic comedic thriller created by Killing Eve’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Coroner star Tamara Podemski is set to co-star opposite Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson in Run, HBO’s romantic comedic thriller pilot from Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her frequent collaborator Vicky Jones.

Written by Jones, Run centers on Ruby (Wever), a woman living a humdrum existence who one day gets a text inviting her to fulfill a youthful pact, promising true love and self-reinvention, by stepping out of her life to take a journey with her oldest flame.

According to Deadline, Podemski plays Babe, a soft-spoken police detective with a dry sense of humor. Babe recently has moved to a small town in Colorado and is enjoying the quieter life it affords. She is lonely and would love to meet someone but lacks both confidence and opportunity. Babe is slightly intimidated when she lands her first big case, which offers her the chance to show off her genuinely good police skills and also meet someone who might change her life forever.

Canadian actress Podemski was a member of the original Canadian cast of Rent and played Maureen in the Broadway production. At the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, she received the Special Jury Prize for Acting for her role in Sterlin Harjo’s Four Sheets To the Wind, a role which earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination.

Coroner returns to DStv for Season 2 in February 2020.
