Show update:

Snowpiercer Ordered to Series at TNT



TNT is officially boarding Snowpiercer.

The cabler has handed a 10-episode series order to the futuristic thriller, which is based on the acclaimed 2013 film of the same name. The TV version stars Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly and Hamilton breakout Daveed Diggs.

“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, EVP of original programming at 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.”

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.

Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) penned the pilot while Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson served as director. A showrunner has not been named.

‘Snowpiercer’ Moves To TBS With Early Season 2 Renewal

UPDATED with quotes from upfront presentation: TBS, known for its comedy lineup, is making its first foray into drama programming, beginning with the high-profile post-apocalyptic sci-fi series Snowpiercer. Ahead of the Season 1 premiere, WarnerMedia has given an early second season renewal to the series, starring Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs, which will move from its current home on TNT to TBS. The first season of Snowpiercer, from ITV-backed Tomorrow Studios, Turner’s Studio T and CJ Entertainment, is now slated to debut in spring of 2020.

The move is part of a broadening of programming flexibility and more integration among the WarnerMedia networks in coordination with its forthcoming streaming service, said Kevin Reilly, President TBS, TNT and Chief Creative Officer Turner and Direct-to-Consumer, at Wednesday’s upfront presentation in New York. As for the networks, “We’re going to be more flexible in our programming strategy to go where the audience is and use every programming tool and asset we have to maximize delivery and connection,” Reilly explained. TBS, TNT and TruTV are stronger if we’re less bound by a single brand position or genre.”

Based on the acclaimed 2013 movie of the same name, Snowpiercer is set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland. It centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe.

In addition to Connelly and Diggs, season one of Snowpiercer stars Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand and Jaylin Fletcher. Rowan Blanchard has been promoted to series regular for season two.

“Snowpiercer is the perfect show to kick-off TBS’ entry into dramas with intricate storytelling, stunning visuals and first-class acting,” said Brett Weitz, general manager for TBS and TNT. “We believe in the longevity of this series and that audiences will be amazed by the fantastical world that brings to life such relevant social, political and environmental issues.”

The long-gestating series underwent a showrunner change in January 2018 when Josh Friedman, who was an executive producer and wrote the pilot, exited the series, over what was described as creative differences. He was replaced by Orphan Black’s Graeme Manson.

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 (Cowboy Bebop, Hanna, Prison Break) and Becky Clements (Good Behavior, Aquarius, Last Man Standing); showrunner Graeme Manson (Orphan Black), who wrote the first episode; director James Hawes (The Alienist, Black Mirror); Matthew O’Connor (Continuum, Tin Man); Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Doctor Strange), and the original film’s producers Bong Joon Ho, Miky Lee, Tae-sung Jeong, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.

TBS is a weird choice considering they've only done comedy and even then 98% of them sucked...

It's owned by AT&T now and they're changing everything around. Expect more content type switching among the owned networks in the future.

I love the movie. One of my favorites of all time. So I'll check this series out. Atleast the first couple episodes. But the trailer was....ok. I like Connelly. But just not sure how I feel seeing this when the movie was perfection.

Looks better than I was expecting. Kinda wish Hulu or Netflix had it, though. It seems odd for TBS to have this.

TBS only started the Very Funny thing maybe less than 15 years ago IIRC.

But I think now that streaming wars are underway, they probably realize it's only a matter of time until they take their syndicated shows off.

TNT seems to be their live action alternative programming network for the future. eSports, wrestling, NBA, etc.

This is probably going to transition TBS to rival USA network demographics for original series dramas.

Looks like the movie with different actors and 5x length. Hard pass.

Movie was great. No need to make this series. Just furthering the notion that they have run out of ideas.

Eh, gonna pass on this. Looks like they're remaking the movie and stretching it out for an entire season.

Anybody watch this last night?

I didn't think it was good but I'll give it a few more shows because I'm a fan of Jennifer Connolly who was recently great in Alita Battle Angel.

Didn’t read all the posts as I’m avoiding spoilers. Do I need to have seen the movie first or is the show a new separate thing?

Eh. This had potential. But would have been taken way more care with on a premium channel like HBO.

The cast outside of Connelly is pretty eh.
