The premise allows for myriad story possibilities, so Runaway‘s future is up in the air. -Oscar Dahl Read more »
Nathan Gamble got his television break on short-lived drama series Runaway, which follows a family frequently on the run from the law and from a killer.  He portrayed the character Tommy Rader, the younger son of Paul Rader (Donnie Wahlberg) and Lily Rader (Leslie Hope) and brother to Hannah Rader (Sarah Ramos) and Henry Rader (Dustin Milligan).  As the youngest, he had difficulty in keeping up lies regarding his family secret.  Unfortunately, the series was officially canceled on October 18, 2006, only airing three out of the 13 episodes ordered by The CW. Read more »

The hip but harsh era of the 1970s will be brought back in the new drama Studio, a project being developed by the Showtime network.  From Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, Studio focuses on the classic drugs and disco lifestyle of the past.  It was penned by Runaway writer Chad Hodge and produced by MRC.  The Hollywood Reporter also notes that Bryan Singer has been rumored to direct the project, that is, if his busy schedule would allow it.  He has, however, signed on as executive producer with producing partner Alex Garcia.  Studio will be revolving around the iconic New York nightclub, Studio 54.  It follows the story of the wild and flamboyant co-founder Steve Rubell and begins with the events leading to the opening of the club in April 1977.  Still in development, Studio has been labeled as a fictional series and certainly not a biopic of Rubell, or a docudrama.  Read more »
