Big-screen besties Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have a brand new project: an interactive competition series on Verizon’s go90 app that allows anyone in the world to participate.
The Runner is a new concept series in which one person is designated “The Runner,” and must follow a series of clues to run across America to end up at a specified destination 30 days later. Over the course of that time, teams will pursue the runner with more than $1 million at stake. Think The Amazing Race meets The Bourne Identity. For an added twist, anyone with the go90 app can play along and try to catch the runner themselves to take the prize.
The Runner is the latest of Damon and Affleck’s joint production projects, which include an upcoming HBO film, a Syfy drama series, and a film about the recent FIFA soccer scandal. The Runner will premiere on July 1 on go90. Check out the teaser for the series below.
