Snowpiercer TV Series

Snowpiercer Series Pilot Lands at TNT

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles boss Josh Friedman’s pilot adaptation of the futurtistic thriller Snowpiercer is pulling into station at TNT.

Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer will explore “class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival” as it follows the remnants of humanity as they inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe.

A co-production of Tomorrow Studios and Turner’s Studio T, the hour-long pilot counts the original film’s Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi among its executive producers.

As seen in the 2013 film fronted by Chris Evans, “Snowpiercer has one of the most original concepts to hit the screen in the last decade, and it’s one that offers numerous opportunities for deeper exploration in a series format,” TNT EVP Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “We look forward to [this] take on a world where humanity is pushed to the extreme.”

Are you curious to see what a Snowpiercer series looks like? Sounds like a whole lotta train tracks.

    Meh. Hooray for new ideas, I guess. Movie was lame though.

  2. Lucky says:

    I thought the movie was amazing. I’d definitely give a series based on it a chance.

  3. Infinite says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing how the series goes.

  4. crvboy says:

    what’s next? a tv series based on Donny Darko? Watched the movie cause it was touted as “original, awesome, great”…
    It was boring, pointless and a total waste of both Chris Evans and everyone else who starred in it. Why would you make a tv show based on a bad movie (although that’s never stopped anyone before…)

    • Simon Jester says:

      I presume it will actually be based on the graphic novel, not the movie. As to why anyone would do THAT… Walking Dead, Preacher, etc.

    No leave it be

  6. Michael Summerset says:

    I suspect they’re doing this because they want a Westworld on a Dark Matter budget.

    I wonder if they’re filming this in Canada?

    Has Kevin Reilly been fired yet?? No way I watch his new TNT.

  8. Bark Star says:

    Not enough substance in that story to warrant a TV show, at elast not without extensive additions. Not to mention that the movie was not really that good. Bad camera work, mediocre direction and a story with too many plot holes in it, just for the sake of “artsy”.
