Experiencing Interruptions?

Running With Violet

Running With Violet is a serialized dramedy about a lonely housewife, a single mother and her toddler who  attempt a girl's weekend, but soon find themselves on the run from a small town meth gang. 

The saving grace through it all is the strength of their budding friendships, the self-strengths they discover, and the driving need to protect little Violet in the back seat.

The show brings together the relationships and queer undertones of Thelma and Louise with the unexpected danger of Fargo. The show also features Canadian YouTube star Jessii Vee making her acting debut.
