TNT has greenlit a full season of the live-actoin Snowpiercer series following the filming of a pilot in late 2017, according to Variety. Based on the OGN Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette, the TV Snowpiercer will star Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, and Mickey Sumner. It's dovetailing off the successful Snowpiercer movie from 2013.
“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 TNT's Executive VP of Original Programming, Sarah Aubrey. “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.”
No debut date for Snowpiercer has been given.
