TNT has unveiled a first look at its upcoming, post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer at New York Comic Con. The clip was presented during a panel featuring Oscar-winner Jennifer Connelly, Tony Award-winner Daveed Diggs, Emmy-nominee Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Tony Award-winner and Grammy-nominee Lena Hall, Sheila Vand, Steven Ogg and executive producer and showrunner Graeme Manson.
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a 1001-car, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival play out in the television adaptation, which is based on the movie and graphic novel series of the same name.
The series will premiere in Spring 2020 on TNT.
Snowpiercer is produced by Tomorrow Studios (a joint venture between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios), along with CJ Entertainment, who produced the original film. The series is executive produced by Tomorrow Studios’ Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements; showrunner Graeme Manson, who wrote the first episode; director James Hawes; Matthew O’Connor; Scott Derrickson, and the original film’s producers Bong Joon Ho, Miky Lee, Tae-sung Jeong, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
