Snowpiercer series gets the green light at TNT

Turner’s TNT has given a series green light to the Snowpiercer series, a futuristic thriller based on the acclaimed movie of the same name. The series stars Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), Tony Award and Grammy Award winner Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton,” Black-ish), Mickey Sumner (American Made), Susan Park (Ghostbusters), Benjamin Haigh (The Conjuring 2), Sasha Frolova (The Interestings), Katie McGuinness (Dirty Filthy Love), Alison Wright (The Accountant), Annalise Basso (Bedtime Stories), Sam Otto (Jellyfish), Roberto Urbina (Narcos), Sheila Vand (Argo), and Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee Lena Hall (All My Children).

“I’m a personal fan of Bong Joon Ho’s epic film, and jumped at the chance to honor his original vision, yet expand upon the world and characters with a diverse, award-winning cast,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “Science fiction is the perfect genre to examine issues of race, class, gender and natural resources with thought-provoking and exciting storytelling.  Snowpiercer  will explore those relevant issues while embarking on a wild, action-filled ride.”

Marty Adelstein, CEO of Tomorrow Studios, added, “Given the exceptional global appeal of the original film, we have a tremendous obligation to ensure the TV adaptation is exceptional in scope and magnitude. We have found that with TNT and with our talented cast. Now we are excited to work together in creating a world unlike any other on television.”

Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation.

Snowpiercer is a co-production of Tomorrow Studios and Turner’s Studio T, along with CJ Entertainment. The pilot was directed by Scott Derrickson and was written by Josh Friedman (Avatar 4Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). The series is executive produced by Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein (AquariusPrison Break, Teen Wolf) and Becky Clements (Good BehaviorAquarius, Last Man Standing), as well as the original film’s Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
