'Snowpiercer' TV Series Set Up at TNT

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi tale Snowpiercer has been in the works with writer Josh Friedman for some time. TNT has now picked up the project for a pilot order, taking inspiration form the film, which took place seven years after the world had become frozen over.

The TV series will handle themes of class warfare, social injustice and survival politics to continue the story realized on both the big screen and in the pages of the graphic novel.

“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,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “We look forward to expanding TNT’s relationship with Tomorrow Studios and their take on a world where humanity is pushed to the extreme.”

“TNT has become a great producing partner to Tomorrow Studios and we are excited to continue our relationship with them on Snowpiercer, for which we not only have a pilot but are writing multiple scripts,” added Adelstein, CEO of Tomorrow Studios. “This is an incredibly powerful story and one for which finding the perfect home was imperative to its success.”
