    There are few people we'd rather share our quarantine with more than Phoebe Waller-Bridge, a sentiment that four separate networks seem to have keyed in on this weekend. Hot on the heels of Friday's benefit release of her 2019 Fleabag Live! stage show on Amazon, Sunday night sees the concurrent season premieres of her new series Run on HBO, and her old series Killing Eve on BBC America and AMC.

    Also: A new show from the creator of Downton Abbey, Issa Rae returns with Insecure Season 4 and Biography tackles Dolly Parton. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV this Sunday:

    SERIES PREMIERE: Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her creative collaborator Vicky Jones have assembled an impressive cast for their new HBO comedic thriller, Run. In the premiere episode, Ruby (Merritt Wever) receives a text from her college boyfriend Billy (Domhnall Gleeson) that causes her to drop everything and meet him on a train that's headed across the country. Watch the trailer. 10:30 PM ET on HBO

    SEASON PREMIERE: Picking up where it left off at the conclusion of an uneven second season, Killing Eve's season premiere sees Eve (Sandra Oh) struggling to move on after being shot by Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Points to this season's writer/showrunner Suzanne Heathcote for reportedly convincing series creator and executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge to make a cameo. Watch the preview. 9:00 PM ET on AMC and BBC America
