TNT is moving forward in a straight path with Snowpiercer, a TV show based on the two hour, six minute movie of the same name, which was based on the 110-page graphic novel of the same name. It's been over a year since the network first picked up the pilot. Hamilton Tony winner Daveed Diggs stars in the reboot alongside Jennifer Connelly.

Snowpiercer is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and 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.

Sarah Aubrey, Executive VP of Original Programming at TNT, but not original ideas, described what she wants out of the series.

"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."

No release date has been announced.
