According to reports, Waller-Bridge will produce the show with longtime collaborator Vicky Jones. Jones will write and Waller-Bridge will star in a recurring role.
Titled Run, the series has been described as “part romantic comedy, part thriller”.
“It centres on ex-lovers who made a pact 15 years ago that if they ever needed to escape life, they could send each other a simple text message — ‘RUN’ — and impulsively disappear together,” The Hollywood Reporter says of the show’s plot.
In a statement, Jones describes it as a “badass romantic comedy thriller” and says “we found a team passionate about storytelling and committed to making stand-out television for audiences around the world”.
Fleabag, meanwhile, has been confirmed for a second series.
In a press release, Waller-Bridge said: “I asked myself if Fleabag has more to say and frankly she hasn’t shut up since. Series two will be a whole new adventure, and I’m beyond thrilled to be coming back.”
