During a deadly future pandemic (that’s 10 times worse than COVID), bickering reality stars Emily and Todd have just three hours to deliver life-saving medicine to Emily’s mom. As they run through the streets, they must dodge vicious snipers and camera drones piloted by the reality TV showrunner Bronson. All while being cheered on by millions of reality TV superfans who are secretly watching Bronson’s live stream of Emily’s struggles.
An 84-minute action-comedy that’s a harsh look at the depths of reality show programming, Outrunners is like Squid Game meets The Truman Show on Game Night.
