Olivia Colman (Rev.) and Katie Leung (Harry Potter) have been cast in lead roles in Channel 4’s upcoming drama serial Run, TVWise has learned.

Colman has been cast as Carol, a stoical, resilient, kind but tough single parent striving to keep her family together despite the constant trials and tribulations presented by her teenage sons Dean and Terry; while Katie Leung has joined Run as Ying, an illegal Chinese immigrant who sells pirate DVDs and stolen phones on the streets of Brixton in hope of making a life for herself in the UK.

Run is a new four-part drama series from indie production company Acme which weaves together the stories of four seemingly unconnected people who are facing life-changing decisions in a world where there is little choice and survival is never a given. The drama serial was created and written by Marlon Smith and Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan and is being executive produced by Jaimie D’Cruz.
