TNT has given a green light to the upcoming series adaptation of “Snowpiercer,” a futuristic thriller TV series based on both the iconic French comic “Le Transperceneige” and its 2013 film adaptation “Snowpiercer” by filmmaker Bong Joon Ho.
Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland following an environmental disaster, the story centers on the remnants of humanity. What’s left inhabits a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are all questioned.
Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Lena Hall, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Katie McGuinness, Susan Park, Benjamin Haigh, Sasha Frolova, Alison Wright, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, and Sheila Vand star.
The pilot was directed by Scott Derrickson (“Doctor Strange”) and was written by Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”). The series is executive produced by Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break,” “Teen Wolf”) and Becky Clements (“Good Behavior,” “Aquarius”), as well as Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
