This year’s 50th annual San Diego Comic Con is bringing out all the stops.
TBS is bringing its highly anticipated sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer to the Indigo Ballroom on Saturday, July 20. The panel will be moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s Clark Collis and will feature some of the show’s stars including Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Lena Hall, Steven Ogg and executive producer and showrunner Graeme Manson. The session will include an exclusive first look at the series premiere, which will debut in Spring 2020 on TBS.
Set more than 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. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation based on the acclaimed movie of the same name. The series was renewed for season two prior to the season one premiere.
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.
We’ll be covering San Diego Comic-Con July 17-21, so stay tuned for panel announcements over the course of the next couple weeks!
