Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel series and the Golden Globe Award winner Bong Joon Ho ("Parasite") film, the TV series "Snowpiercer" did not look like it would happen at first.  The series faced numerous production problems and delays in development at TNT for over three years which resulted from creative differences from all concerned.

Showrunners and writers came and went and then the series was punctured to TBS — a strange decision — and then then punctured back to TNT and I think it's all right now that the show hits the cable channel on May 31 and a new trailer and poster arrived.

“It had a long birth. It’s a really great property, I’m a huge fan of director Bong (Joon Ho)’s movie and huge fan of the graphic novels, and it took a long time to get it right and we got it right,” showrunner Graeme Manson said (via Deadline) during his TCA stop this week.

To put it more bluntly, “It takes a long time to make really good shit,” series actor Daveed Diggs said. Season one of this gripping, futuristic thriller stars Academy Award-winner Jennifer Connelly, Emmy nominee Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, and Jaylin Fletcher.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation.

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. Watch the trailer below.
