TNT Orders ‘Snowpiercer’ Television Series Pilot

Just over a year ago we mentioned that a television series based off of the 2013 film Snowpiercer. Well, it seems like the project is steadily moving forward, as the project just got a pilot order from the TNT network.

The team behind the series appears to be intact from a year ago, with the project being developed by Tomorrow Studios and the pilot will be written by Josh Friedman. The film itself was based on the 1982 French comic Le Transperceneige about a post-Apocalyptic civilization on a constantly moving train, and while it was visually stunning, there were some issues with the plot. Hopefully the television series will be a new adaptation though, and can take the time to correct these issues.

Frankly it’ll just be nice to see more post-apocalyptic fiction that doesn’t involve any zombies.
