In German, shows are running on TV, hence they laufen. (Not rennen!)

For airing (on TV), you could also say wird ... (im Fernsehen) ausgestrahlt.

Why doesn't "sendet" (is broadcasting) work here: "Die Serie sendet in zwei Stunden im Fernsehen"? Or alternatively, "Die Serie wird in zwei Stunden im Fernsehen gesendet"?
