TNT Taps Critically-Acclaimed Writer Graeme Manson as Showrunner For Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Series "Snowpiercer"

Oscar(R) winner Jennifer Connelly and Tony Award(R) winner Daveed Diggs star in the series co-produced by Tomorrow Studios, Turner's Studio T, along with CJ Entertainment

Turner's TNT has tapped award-winning writer and producer Graeme Manson (Orphan Black) to serve as showrunner on Snowpiercer, a futuristic thriller based on the acclaimed movie of the same name. The series stars Oscar(R) winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), Tony Award(R) winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Black-ish), Mickey Sumner (American Made), Alison Wright (The Accountant), Susan Park (Ghostbusters), Sasha Frolova (The Interestings), Sheila Vand (Argo), Katie McGuinness (Dirty Filthy Love), Roberto Urbina (Narcos), Sam Otto (Jellyfish), Tony Award(R) winner and Grammy(R) nominee Lena Hall (All My Children), Annalise Basso (Bedtime Stories) and Benjamin Haigh (The Conjuring 2).

"Graeme's extensive background in the sci-fi genre coupled with his brilliant work behind Orphan Black made him the perfect choice for this series," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. "He is the best conductor to navigate the thought provoking and delicate themes of the series while bringing this frozen, futuristic world to life."

"I've been a tremendous fan of Graeme's work and his creative vision aligns perfectly with shaping the Snowpiercer world for a television audience," added Marty Adelstein, executive producer and CEO of Tomorrow Studios.

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. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned in this riveting television adaptation.

Manson co-created the hit and critically-praised sci-fi thriller Orphan Black. In addition, he has penned several episodes of TV series, TV movies and is known for writing the film Cube.

Snowpiercer is a co-production of Tomorrow Studios and Turner's Studio T, along with CJ Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Tomorrow Studios' Marty Adelstein (Aquarius, Prison Break, Teen Wolf) and Becky Clements (Good Behavior, Aquarius, Last Man Standing). Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) and the original film's Bong Joon Ho, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi are also executive producers on the series.
