Runaway was a thrilling series created by Chad Hodge and was executive produced by Darren Star ("Sex and the City", "Beverly Hills 90210', "Melrose Place") that began airing on CW (when the network just began) and unfortunately, due to a bad time slot, didn't receive good ratings. So, originally planned for 13-episodes, nine were filmed and only three aired in the US (while in Europe, all nine episodes were shown).
The series revolves around the Rader family. A family of five that has moved from town-to-town and changing their identities after Paul Rader (Donnie Wahlberg), a successful attorney wrongfully accused of the death of Erin Baxter, who worked at his law firm (and the series shows that the two are close). But the killer sends a package to his wife Lily (Leslie Hope) that their children Henry (Dustin Milligan), Hannah (Sarah Ramos) and Tommy (Nathan Gamble) will be next.
To protect the family, Paul and Lilly have moved from around as fugitives and settled in Iowa. Henry is a high school sophomore who is not too happy with his father and doesn't even know if his father committed the crime or not. He is unhappy that he has to be separated from his girlfriend Kylie (who lives in Maryland) and does whatever he can to communicate with her. Henry must pretend that he is a twin of his sister Hannah despite being a few years older.
As for Hannah, she was a social outcast in Maryland but now in Iowa, she's recreating her life. She starts to fall for her jock and neighbor, Brady.
As for Tommy, he is the youngest of the family and at 8-years-old, having to juggle identities and living another life is becoming difficult for him.
Meanwhile, US Marshall Agent Huntley and Agent Raj Rao are hot on the case to find them while the Rader family have to do what they can to survive and not be caught or arouse any suspicion.
